"He looks very good so far'" Hughes told fulhamfc.com. "He looked very comfortable on the ball from little bits we saw against United. In the game against Blackpool he picked the pass for Dickson's goal and some of his touches, his hold-up play and the way he moved the ball were very good - he did well so he looks a good addition to the squad.
"We haven't seen much of Carlos Salcido because of the international break but we've trained with Rafik and he looks solid, good on the ball and should fit in with the way we play here. He looks another really good signing."
