Malian international midfielder Mohamed Sissoko has completed his switch to Mexican side Atletico de San Luis on a free transfer.

Sissoko joins the Mexican second-tier club after a season in the Indonesian Liga 1, where he scored five goals in 20 appearances for Mitra Kukar.

The ex-Valencia, Liverpool and Juventus defensive midfielder's move was announced by the club via their Twitter page.

"Attention fans! we have a new member in our team with experience at clubs such as Valencia, Liverpool, Juventus, PSG, Fiorentina and Levante. Welcome Sissokomomo!" the club said.

Although the length of the deal has not been announced, the club becomes the 32-year-old's fourth home in a year after parting ways with Indian side Pune City in December 2016.

He later had his contract with Italian second-tier side Ternana terminated after only three weeks due to a negative attitude.

Sissoko played for Liverpool between 2005 and 2008, and was a key part in the Reds side that lifted the English FA Cup back in 2006.

The Les Aigles player has 34 appearances next to his name for Mali, scoring twice, and appeared at the 2004, 2008, 2010 and 2013 CAF Africa Cup of Nations tournaments.
