Halliche joins Fulham from Benfica

Fulham says Algeria defender Rafik Halliche has signed for the
Premier League club from Portuguese side Benfica on a three-year
contract.

The 23-year-old center back joined Fulham on Tuesday for an
undisclosed fee, having spent the last two seasons on loan at
Portuguese team C.D. Nacional.

Halliche has 20 caps for Algeria, and played every minute of his
country’s three group matches at the World Cup this summer.
