Championship club Fulham have completed the signing of Tim Hoogland on a free transfer after the defender left German Bundesliga side Schalke.
The 29-year-old right-back has signed a one-year deal with the Whites.
Hoogland, a former Germany Under-20 international, began his career with the Gelsenkirchen side and moved to Mainz in 2007.
He re-joined Schalke in 2010, where he played under current Fulham manager Felix Magath.
Hoogland made 19 league appearances for Schalke last season and featured twice in the Champions League.
