Mahamadou Diarra is excited to be joining Fulham.

The former Real Madrid and Lyon midfielder has won a plethora of medals throughout his career and is confident that his attitude will suit the style of Martin Jol's side.

"Fulham is open to players who like to play football, who give their best and who have a winning mentality," he explained. "The Club is ambitious and that was made clear to me by the hierarchy here. By speaking to the Manager it is also clear that he wants the team to progress and move in the right direction and this made me want to sign straight away."
