REPORTS in France claim Warrington Wolves have taken young Frenchman Yanis Belmaaziz on trial.

The 17-year-old is a forward who has been playing for the under 19s team of Saint-Esteve XIII – Catalans Dragons' reserve side.

His coach at Saint-Esteve Patrick Noguera is quoted on as saying Belmaaziz has been training with The Wire's academy players and will do so again in the new year.

Noguera also says Belmaaziz is "versatile and as good in attack as in defence."
