In August 2009 attacking player Ghilas joined City on a four year deal from Spanish side Celta Vigo. With about 3.8 years left on his contract, it was evident that he wasn’t up to the Premier League challenge and he drifted out of the first season, spending the next two seasons on loan in France at Arles-Avignon and Reims.
Born in Marseille, Ghilas started his professional career at the relative venerable age of 19 when he joined French side Cannes, having cut his teeth at amateur side ES Vitrolles. In 2006 he switched to Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes, and two years later he joined Celta Vigo.
Following a loan spell at Reims, he signed permanently for the north France side in 2012. He started with plenty of goals but by January 2014 his form has faded and he closed his professional career with six months at Belgian side Charleroi.
Ghilas made his senior international debut for Algeria in 2007, eventually amassing 19 caps and 3 goals.
