Fulham have completed the signing of Newcastle's Republic of Ireland winger Damien Duff for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old made his name at Blackburn, where he played under current Fulham boss Roy Hodgson, before moving to Chelsea for £17m in 2003.

Duff then moved to Newcastle in the summer of 2006 for £5m.

"I am delighted to add a player of his calibre to our squad and welcome the further midfield options he provides us with," Hodgson told Fulham's website.

"I have known Damien for over a decade since he broke into the first team at Blackburn when I was manager, so I'm fully aware of his qualities and I am looking forward to working with him again."

Duff added: "I know that having spoken to the manager in recent days that the club's ambitions remain high and I am looking forward to the challenges ahead."

He scored an own goal at Aston Villa on the final day of last season as Newcastle were relegated from the Premier League after losing 1-0.
