Manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, said: “He’s going to offer experience – we’ve got a lot of young players and to get his experience I think it will benefit a lot of our young players.

On signing, Guedioura said: “I’m very grateful to be given the opportunity to sign here.
“I know the manager from my time working with him at Nottingham Forest and I’m happy to be joining him again at this club.
“I’ve played here a few times and it’s a nice club – I want to get some game time here and hopefully it can help me to show that I'm ready and available to play for my country again.”
