The Lens defender has impressed the Scottish tactician after linking up with the South Coast side on trial.
Burley is now looking to push through a loan deal for the Frenchman, who spent the 2005/06 season with Portsmouth.
"We are speaking to Lens about a year-long loan. That is where we are at the moment," he told the club's official website.
"We are short of a left-back with Gareth Bale leaving and he has good ability.
"He loves to get forward and has a good left foot and we should know more in the next week."
