Free agent Diarra signs up for Fulham campaign
Tuesday 28 February 2012
Fulham yesterday signed the Mali midfielder Mahamadou Diarra until the end of the season, pending a visa being granted.
The 30-year-old played for AS Monaco for the second half of last term after four seasons at Real Madrid, where he made 122 appearances and won two Spanish league titles. However, he barely featured in the first team once Jose Mourinho arrived as manager.
Diarra spent five seasons before that at Lyons, winning the French Ligue 1 title four times.
The Premier League club said there was an option to extend the deal to 2013.
