Fulham sign ex-Real Madrid star

Fulham have signed former Real Madrid midfielder Mahamadou Diarra.

The Mali international, 30, has agreed a contact until the end of the season with a view to a longer-term deal.

Diarra, whose move is subject to him securing a visa, had been without a club since leaving Monaco last summer.

He played for OFI Crete and Dutch side Vitesse before four-year spells with Lyon and Real, where he played under ex-England boss Fabio Capello.
