Friday 05 October 2012
Fulham have completed the signing of free agent Mickael Tavares on a short-term deal.
The 29-year-old defensive midfielder worked with Cottagers boss Martin Jol during the Dutchman's spell as Hamburg manager.
Tavares, who spent the 2010/11 on loan at Middlesbrough, joins Fulham following his summer release by the Bundesliga club and has penned a short-term contract at Craven Cottage.
"I'm happy that I'm now officially a Fulham player and I'm looking forward to playing under Martin Jol once more," the Senegal international told the club's official website, http://www.fulhamfc.com.
"The players and staff have made me feel welcome and I can't wait to get started with my new teammates."
Speaking about his new acquisition, Jol said: "Mickael is a typical holding midfielder and I'm delighted that we've been able to strengthen this area.
"He played for me when I was at Hamburg so I'm familiar with his qualities and he will prove to be a very good addition."
