FORMER Football League wingman Leon Jeanne has joined Welsh League high-flyers Taffs Well.

Jeanne, 32, scored one goal from six (+1) Welsh Premier appearances for Carmarthen Town earlier this season after previously playing in the league for Barry Town, Port Talbot and Afan Lido.

He achieved a degree of notoriety during a troubled career in which he made less than 100 appearances for 14 clubs over a period of 16 years. 

Jeanne came to prominence with QPR but disappeared and failed to report for Wales Under-21 duty. 

He then signed for hometown club Cardiff City in 2001 but tested positive for drugs and, after being released, he joined Havant & Waterlooville before first arriving in the Welsh Premier with Port Talbot. 

Cleared of court charges relating to drugs, he signed for Newport County, Dinas Powys, Barry and Maesteg Park. 

Jeanne then played for pub side Carpenters Arms before spells at Weston-super-Mare, Cardiff Corries, Bath City and Cinderford Town. 

He was given a chance to prove himself at Brighton & Hove Albion in the summer of 2011 but ended-up at Afan Lido and has a career total of 12 WPL goals from his 48 (+13) appearances.
