Fulham have completed the signing of former England midfielder Kieran Richardson from Sunderland.
The 27-year-old, who can also play at left-back, has signed a three-year deal with the option of a further year.
The Cottagers have paid a reported £2m for Richardson, who
joined Sunderland from Manchester United in 2007.
"Kieran is a proven top-level player, who has the versatility to play a number of positions," Fulham manager Martin Jol said.
"He will bring all-round quality which will add strength to our squad and I'm confident that he will adapt well to our style of football and make an impact for us."
