Yanis Salibur (born 24 January 1991 in Saint-Denis) is a French football player who currently plays for En Avant de Guingamp in the French Lligue 1.

Football career[edit]

Yannis began his career with his local club Red Star Paris. In early 2004, he was one of three Red Star players selected to attend the prestigious Clairefontaine academy. After spending three years there, he signed with Nord-based side Lille OSC.

Despite reported interests from Italian sides Roma, Torino, and Udinese,[1] Yannis signed his first professional contract with Lille in June 2008. The contract was for three years. For the 2008–09 season, he was placed on Lille's first-team squad, though he would not be handed a number. He instead continued playing in the reserves. He made his professional football debut for Lille on January 23, 2009, a day before his 18th birthday, in a Coupe de France match against USL Dunkerque coming on as a substitute in the 76th minute.[2] In his 3 years at Lille he played in the regional league for the Lille "B" team 41 times scoring 4 goals.

On 13 January 2011, Salibur joined Ligue 2 club US Boulogne on an 18-month contract.[3]

On 6 August 2012, Salibur signed a three-year contract with Ligue 2 side Clermont Foot.

On 31 December 2015, Clermont and En Avant de Guingamp announced the signing of the player with the Ligue 1 side, on a three-and-a-half-year contract.[4] Premier League club Hull City agreed a few to sign Salibur on 31 January 2017, but were unable to process the deal before the transfer window closed.[5]

International career[edit]

Yannis is a France youth international having played for the U-16s, U-17s, and last played for the France U-18 squad. He was a part of the U-17 squad that finished runners-up at the 2008 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship.
