Former Fulham midfielder Damien Duff has signed a one-year contract with Melbourne City of Australia's A-League.

The 35-year-old, who left relegated Fulham last month, is the Australian A-League club's second major signing in a week after David Villa committed to joining on a 10-match guest stint following the World Cup.

Melbourne City coach John van't Schip said Duff would be a terrific example for younger members of the team while still performing on the pitch.

"His career speaks for itself," he said.

"He has achieved almost everything at club level and has been a great player at an international level too.

"He comes to us straight from the English Premier League with Fulham, so he has been playing at the highest level against top teams and top players."

Duff played for Blackburn Rovers, Chelsea, Newcastle United and Fulham in the Premier League.
