Ahmed Yahiaoui (born January 12, 1987 in Marseille) is a French football midfielder of Algerian origin.

Club career[edit]

Whilst at Olympique de Marseille, Yahiaoui was a target for Chelsea FC but the club was unsuccessful in its attempts to signing him, as Olympique de Marseille had persuaded him to stay with the squad.[1] At the beginning of his career, Yahiaoui played for France U-17. However, he failed to make an impact at his then club Olympique de Marseille, in contrast to his team-mate Samir Nasri. He left the squad to play one year for the Ligue 2 side FC Istres, before joining FC Sion, from where he was released at the beginning of 2007.

Yahiaoui had been on trial at Everton FC but failed to secure a permanent deal.

AS Cannes[edit]

After having an unsuccessful week long trial with Everton FC in an attempt to secure a permanent deal as David Moyes was looking to strengthen his squad before the start of the 2007-08 Premier League season.[2][3] Yahiaoui signed a contract for a year and a half with AS Cannes in December 2007 on a free transfer.[4]
