Former Dutch international midfielder Phillip Cocu has signed a one-year deal with United Arab Emirates club Al-Jazeera.

The 36-year-old, who has 101 caps for the national side, did not extend his contract with Dutch side PSV Eindhoven at the end of last season.

He joined his new team this week during a training camp in Munich, Germany.

The versatile former AZ Alkmaar (1988-1990), Vitesse Arnhem (1990-1995) and Barcelona (1998-2004) midfielder who can also play in defence, will be the only foreign player at Al-Jazeera.

He rejoined PSV in 2004 after playing for the club for three years between 1995 and 1998.

Cocu won five Dutch league titles during his career and one in Spain.
