Mehdi Khalis (born 6 January 1989) is a professional football player who currently plays for Moroccan side FUS de Rabat.

Khalis played for Falkirk in the Scottish First Division in the 2010–11 season.[2] During the 2011–12 season, he played 17 league matches for JA Drancy in the Championnat de France amateur.[3] On 6 June 2012, he signed for newly promoted Ligue 2 club Chamois Niortais.[4] He made eight appearances in total during the 2012–13 campaign. Khalis was subsequently told in the summer of 2013 that he was not part of manager Pascal Gastien's plans, and in September that year he joined Moroccan club FUS Rabat on a free transfer, signing a three-year contract.[5]

Although born in Les Lilas, France, Khalis has represented Morocco internationally at under-21 and under-23 levels.
