Fulham boss Felix Magath has signed German right-back Tim Hoogland on a free transfer.

The 29-year-old, a free agent after his contract at Schalke expired, has agreed a one-year deal at Craven Cottage.

He played under Magath at Schalke, where Hoogland began his career and then returned in 2010 following a three-year spell at FSV Mainz.

Capped by Germany at Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 levels, Hoogland played in the Champions League and Europa League during his time with Schalke.

His signing was announced 24 hours after Fulham confirmed their capture of Australia striker Adam Taggart.
