Old heads find new clubs

Transfer round-up: Friday's deals saw a number of veteran internationals on the move.

Old head
Newly promoted Leicester City FC landed one of English football's most experienced strikers in the 36-year-old Les Ferdinand. The former English international arrived from relegated West Ham United FC. "There were other clubs in the running but once I spoke to [Leicester manager] Micky Adams I made my mind up pretty quickly," Ferdinand said.

French signing
Ferdinand will be joined at Leicester by French midfield player Lilian Nalis, who has signed from AC Chievo Verona. The 31-year-old impressed Adams while playing for SC Bastia last year, and his new manager said: "I watched him three or four times at Bastia and liked what I saw."

Tøfting on the move
Former Danish international midfield player Stig Tøfting has moved further afield to kick-start his career after being released from Bolton Wanderers FC. The 34-year-old has left Europe for Chinese side Tianjin Taida. "Tøfting has impressed us," said Tianjin manager Zhang Yifeng.

Romanian reunion
At FC Brasov, two old Romanian internationals have joined forces with 35-year-old goalkeeper Florin Prunea linking up with former team-mate and current Brasov coach Marius Lacatus. Prunea has agreed a two-year contract.

Back to Poland
Meanwhile in Poland, international striker Pawel Kryszalowicz has returned home to KS Amica Wronki from Germany's Eintracht Frankfurt. The 29-year-old is back at the club he quit for Eintracht in 2000 saying that he wants to play top-flight football again.

Spanish moves
Spanish side RCD Espanyol have signed striker Raúl Molina on a four-year contract from relegated RC Recreativo de Huelva, while former Espanyol winger Enrique de Lucas has penned a four-year deal with Deportivo Alavés after a loan spell with Chelsea FC.
