Born in Marseille, France, on December 17th, 2000, he started at youth level exceptionally young, signing up with Repos Vitrolles at six years of age. Wes had quite a nomadic youth career training under a host of different academies which also includes Bassin Minier, Pennes Mirabeau, Bel Air, and finally Saint-Étienne in 2015, where he would go on to complete his development phase. A few years later, on May 15th, 2018, the teenager signed his first professional contract with the club, and exactly a year on he would make his debut for Les Verts’ first team in a 3-0 win over OGC Nice in Ligue 1. The centre back made huge impressions at the State Geoffroy-Guichard during his debut season, playing in 24 games for ASSE. Wes featured in the French Cup final but AS Saint-Étienne succumbed to PSG by the solitary goal. An aggressive defender, quick across the pitch and superb in the air, clubs around Europe began to take notice of his considerable talents and in the summer of 2020 Premier League club Leicester City tabled a massive €35 million bid which saw the talented Frenchman move to England to play for The Foxes. It didn’t take Wes long to silence any doubters on foreign soil, the teenage centre back starred in the Foxes 1-0 away win over Arsenal, winning widespread praise for keeping The Gunners at bay.
