The former Ghana international has joined the La Liga side on a free transfer after a successful trial period at the club

Sulley Muntari has signed for Deportivo La Coruna, the La Liga strugglers bringing in the free agent to boost their relegation battle.

Clarence Seedorf was appointed by Depor this month but is yet to oversee a victory, or even see his side score a goal.

And the Dutchman has signed former AC Milan team-mate Muntari in a bid to give Depor a greater chance of avoiding the drop.

Muntari, who played in three World Cups for Ghana, was available on a free transfer after leaving Pescara at the end of last season.

The 33-year-old had an unhappy spell at the club, saying he was "treated like a criminal" after claiming to have been racially abused during a Serie A match at Cagliari.

Muntari's most successful period came at Inter Milan, where he played for four seasons between 2008 and 2012. At Inter, the midfielder won two Serie A titles, two Coppas Italia as well as the Champions League in 2010.

He began his professional career with Udinese in 2002 before moving to Portsmouth, while also spending time at both Milan clubs, Sunderland, Saudi side Al-Ittihad and Pescara.

Depor, second bottom in the table, are three points from safety with 14 league games still to play
