Fulham defender Carlos Salcido has joined Mexican club Tigres on a season-long loan deal.

Former Cottagers manager Mark Hughes signed the 31-year-old from Dutch side PSV Eindhoven last summer.

Salcido made 23 appearances for Fulham last season but grew unsettled at the club after a robbery at his home resulted in his family leaving England.

The full-back has now joined Nuevo Leon-based side Tigres after undergoing a medical in Mexico on Tuesday.

Salcido has made more than 90 appearances for the Mexico national team and played at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups.

Fulham confirmed the deal on their official Twitter page and Salcido is likely to join up with his new team-mates for training on Wednesday.
