Julien Faubert, former West Ham United and Real Madrid defender, is currently on trial with Scottish Premiership club St. Johnstone, according to BBC Sport.

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.

His time at West Ham United saw him make over 100 appearances in all competitions for the Hammers, during which he also made a surprising loan move to Real Madrid. He would return for another three years before the club would decide against renewing his contract.

Despite having earned a cap with the France national team, Faubert has also represented Martinique since 2014.

Since then, Faubert played a crucial role in the country’s Caribbean Cup qualification campaign, scoring five times.

Martinique would progress unbeaten before narrowly missing out at the group stage on goal difference in a group comprising of Jamaica, Haiti and Antigua and Barbuda.
