Fulham have signed Inter Milan midfielder Olivier Dacourt on loan for the remainder of the season.

The former Leeds and Everton star has made just one appearance for the Italian giants this term and jumped at the chance to be reunited with Fulham boss Roy Hodgson at Craven Cottage. The Whites were looking for midfielder reinforcements after the January departures of Jimmy Bullard and Leon Andreasen and the French veteran fitted the bill perfectly.

The 35 year-old has fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho and will add ballast to the Fulham engine room.
