OFFICIAL: Standard Liege Sign Olivier Dacourt


The French midfielder has signed for the Belgian club.

Champions League hopefuls Standard Liege have confirmed the signing of highly-rated midfielder Olivier Dacourt in an official statement on their website on Wednesday evening.

The 34-year-old midfielder has been a free agent ever since Inter released him on a free transfer this summer. Dacourt has signed a one-year deal at the Belgian club.

Standard were keen to add some more depth to their midfield due to the absence of skipper Steven Defour, who will be sidelined for three more months due to a foot injury.

The former French international will not be available for Standard’s Champions League matches however. Dacourt could make his official debut for the Rouches in this weekend’s league match against Kortrijk.
