Former Hammer Carlton Cole has signed for the Indonesian team Persib Bandung.
The 33-year-old, who last played for the American team Sacramento Republic last year, has signed a 10-month deal with the club, with the option of an extension.
He underwent a medical in Bandung on Wednesday and was officially presented by the club on Thursday morning.
Cole told the club’s official website: ‘I never knew my career would bring me to Indonesia, (but) this is a great club. I want to pay for the support of the fans by scoring a lot of goals. Essien joining simplified the process for me to come over here. He’s a big player in Europe. The Persib fans are great. I’m happy to be here.’
Teddy Tjahyono, part of the Persib Bandung management added: ‘He came Monday night, on Tuesday, we (underwent) negotiations and he passed the medical test on Wednesday. He was ready to join Persib.’
