The 27-year-old who was previously at Oldham Athletic, joins the Staggies on a contract to the end of the season subject to international clearance.

He is Ross County's second French signing this week after bringing in former Hamilton Academical, St Mirren and Norwich City midfielder Tony Andreu yesterday.

French-Algerian Maouche, started out his career with St Etienne before moving to Swiss outfit Servette, with stops at Lausanne Sport and Tours before being brought to the UK by Oldham Athletic.

Maouche spent 3 years with Oldham from 2017-20 making 75 apperances for the Latics.

On the signing, manager John Hughes said, “Mohamed is a player that will feel he has a bit of a point to prove and we believe he can add to the group.

"He has that bit of flare about him that can spark special moments in games, and we have to make sure that is what he does here and does it consistently.”

“If you look at some of the performances Mohamed put in for Oldham over his time there it shows that he can play and what he will bring to Ross County.

"The important part for us is we need to see his best play every time he steps on to the pitch and I am sure he will want to make sure of that too.”

Maouche will complete a period of isolation prior to joining up with the team which rules him out of Sunday's fixture with Livingston.
