Place of Birth: Montreuil-under-wood

Position: Midfield

Previous Clubs: Lens

The up and coming winger-cum-striker, who’s yet to make an appearance for French Ligue 1 side Lens, is highly regarded as a skilful and tricky left winger who was brought to Meadow Lane to allow Gary Mills a chance to assess the youngster as a possible option to boost the club’s waning wing-play.

Kaissi, greatly admired for his technique at the French outfit, has only played one fully competitive match in the past three years – that being an international friendly against Italy where he came on as a second half substitute in a 1-0 win for the Italians.

However, Yazid turned out recently in County’s second-string friendly with
Walsall on a trial basis after impressing Mills with his speed and determination in training.

Kaissi recently returned to Lens after completing his trial period.
