The 27-year-old trained with Mick McCarthy's men for the first time on Monday and has been included in the squad for Tuesday night's Suffolk Premier Cup tie at Walsham Le Willows.

Youga started his career at French giants Lyon, where he trained alongside Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema and Chelsea's Florent Malouda.

He arrived at Charlton during the summer of 2005 and went on to make 71 appearances for the London club in his six years at The Valley.

Youga had loan spells at Bristol City, Bradford and Scunthorpe, but his progress at Charlton was hindered by knee problems.

The player joined Yeovil last January on a short term contract but left Huish Park by mutual consent in March.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
