Mahamadou Diarra rejoins Fulham until the end of the season

The former Real Madrid midfielder has re-signed for Felix Magath's side on a short-team deal after recovering from a serious knee injury, having been released last summer
Fulham have confirmed that midfielder Mahamadou Diarra has rejoined the club until the end of the season.

The former Real Madrid man was released by the Cottagers in the summer after suffering a knee injury in December that ended his season prematurely.

However, Diarra has since made a good recovery from injury and has been training with Felix Magath's side before being rewarded with a new deal based on the number of first-team performances that he makes.

In his first stint with the club, Diarra made 19 appearances for Fulham, scoring once, after joining them on a free transfer from Monaco in February 2012.

The 32-year-old links up with a Fulham side who are currently bottom of the Premier League with just seven games of the season left to play.
