Swansea City hand trial to defender Yassin Moutaouakil

Motherwell loan signing Yassin Moutaouakil
Moutaouakil was in high demand before opting to join Charlton in 2007

Swansea City are set to give a trial to former Charlton Athletic defender Yassin Moutaouakil.

The 24-year-old Frenchman has been released by the Addicks after an unsuccessful three years at the Valley.

Moutaouakil, who plays at right-back, made just 29 appearances since joining from French side Chateauroux in a £400,000 deal.

He also spent three months on loan at Motherwell last season where he featured 15 times.

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers said: "He was the captain of the French Under-21s and fits the bill in terms of how we like to play football.

"It is an opportunity that came for us and we can have a look at him for a week."

The trial is likely to fuel further speculation over the future of Spanish right-back Angel Rangel, who is wanted by Blackpool.

Swansea have already turned down a bid from the Seasiders, but it is understood Rangel is interested in a move to the Premier League new boys.
