Faubert, who last appeared against for Bordeaux against FC Lorient in a 0-0 draw on February 5, played against Hearts' under-20s side on Monday night. The club confirmed the news, where he is likely to appear with other trialists Daniel Adejo and Plamen Krachunov for training later this week.
The full-back returned to his first club, Bordeaux, in 2013 following a spell in Turkey with Elazigspor. He appeared 16 times for the Süper Lig side before being offered a chance to return to France. In a three-year span, he featured 60 times in all competitions, before falling out of favour at Le Girondins. The club now sits in ninth place, having won three, lost two and drawn one of their last six games.
