Fulham defender moves to Mexican club

Fulham left-back Carlos Salcido has completed a permanent move to Mexican club Tigres de la UANL.

The 31-year-old joined the Cottagers in August 2010 from PSV Eindhoven and impressed during his first season in the Premier League.

However, Salcido grew unsettled at the west London club after a robbery at his house resulted in his family leaving England.

The full-back joined Nuevo Leon-based club Tigres on loan at the start of the 2011/12 season and has now completed a permanent move to Mexico.

Salcido made 26 appearances for the Cottagers and has been replaced in the side by John Arne Riise.
