Mahamadou Diarra completed 90 minutes for Fulham's development squad on Monday as he bids to earn a new deal at Craven Cottage, reports The Mirror.
The former Real Madrid man made his first appearance for over nine months as the Cottagers Under-21s took on their Reading counterparts.
Diarra has been training with the club despite not having his contract renewed upon its expiry at the end of last season, but could yet earn a new deal if he's able to prove his fitness.
The 32-year-old would add yet more experience to a Fulham midfield which already boasts Scott Parker, Damien Duff and Giorgos Karagounis.
The former Real Madrid and Lyon man first linked up with Martin Jol's side in February 2012 and could now occupy the last place in Fulham's 25-man Premier League squad having come through the game without any injury repercussions.
Should he be awarded a new deal the Mali international would add steel to a side who are yet to win a league game since their opening day victory over Sunderland, who currently side bottom of the Premier League table having endured a dismal start.
