Former France international Pascal Chimbonda has signed for Northern League Division One team Washington.

Chimbonda, 38, played for Tottenham Hotspur and Washington's near-neighbours Sunderland in a 406-game professional career with 10 clubs.

His one appearance for France came against Denmark in May 2006 as a substitute for Willy Sagnol.

"To bring somebody of Pascal's calibre is brilliant for the club, the players, staff and town," boss James Clark said.

The Guadeloupe-born full-back has played non-league football before, playing for Market Drayton Town in 2013.
