Fulham have signed New Zealand midfielder Simon Elliott on a free transfer from US side Columbus Crew.
Elliott is a New Zealand international
Elliott is still awaiting international clearance from Columbus via US Soccer, after Fulham's transfer request was wrongly sent to New Zealand Soccer.
But he could make his debut in Sunday's FA Cup match with Leyton Orient.
"He is a solid midfield player and is experienced," said Fulham boss Chris Coleman of the 31-year-old. "He'll add strength and depth to the squad."
Elliott came to Fulham's attention when he played for Columbus in a pre-season friendly against the Cottagers.
