Djibril Cisse has completed his move to Russian Premier League side FC Kuban Krasnodar.

The France international has agreed a one-year contract with the Russian outfit, with the option to extend his deal by a further 12 months.

Cisse had been looking for a new club after leaving Championship side QPR at the end of June, with Kuban becoming his ninth professional club.

Kuban sporting director Sergey Doronchenko told the club's official website: "Cisse is not only a big name for FC Kuban, but he has ambitions this season.

"He wants to get back into the French national side with FC Kuban."

The 31-year-old will bring a wealth of experience after previous spells at the likes of Liverpool, Marseille and Lazio.

He joins a club that will play in the third preliminary round of the UEFA Europa League after achieving a fifth-place finish in the league last season.
