Eric Djemba-Djemba has joined Scottish club St Mirren on a short-term deal.

The 32-year old Cameroonian midfielder passed a medical on Wednesday before signing a contract that lasts for the remainder of the season.

“I am delighted to announce the signing of Eric Djemba-Djemba till the end of the season,” Buddies boss Danny Lennon told the club’s official website.

“He is a top-drawer player who does a power of work in the defensive midfield area.

“At times I would have liked to play someone alongside Jim Goodwin in that role to protect the back four and give our creative midfielders more of a license to hit the opponents box. Eric has performed that role at the highest level for top European clubs.

“He wants regular football to ensure he goes to the World Cup with Cameroon this summer and we are happy to give him that platform.”

Djemba-Djemba, who has featured more than 20 times for Cameroon, signed with Manchester United from Nantes back in 2003 but was quickly moved on to Aston Villa after failing at Old Trafford.

Since then he has spent time with Burnley, Qatar SC, Odense BK, Hapoel Tel Aviv and Partizan Belgrade.
