At 31 he has signed a 3 year deal and the fee was not disclosed.
He has a wealth of experience and i was actually a fan of his performances at the Euros. He has also been the captain of both France and Bordeaux in the past.
Good to see we can still attract players like this.
In the grand scheme of things i guess the only negative is that now we have 3 out and out DM's which means that guys like O'Neill and Collison will be pushed to the wings, although they are not orthodox wingers. I guess its what to expect from a "defence first" Sam Allardyce team.
