Steve Sidwell has completed his move from Aston Villa to Fulham for an undisclosed fee.
The midfielder has penned a deal which will initially run for six months but could see him remain at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2014.
The 28-year-old, who emerged through the academy ranks at Arsenal and has also turned out for Reading and Chelsea, returns to the capital following a two-and-a-half-year stint at Villa.
Sidwell has opted to move on after finding first-team football hard to come by, with sporadic appearances made of late. (Sky Sports)
Mark Hughes has beaten off competition from the likes of Wolves and West Ham to snap up the former Chelsea midfielder who will hope that he will get some regular first team football at Craven Cottage. The 28 year old has seen his career stutter somewhat, first at Stamford Bridge and then at Villa Park where he has managed just 24 Premier League starts in two and a half years.
Fulham were looking to bring some more talent to their midfield and the signing of the Londoner may well help them build up more possession in matches as Sidwell is very adept at getting hold of the ball and looking to find an intelligent pass to keep an attack going.
