SC Freiburg have announced the signing of Hamed Namouchi on a free transfer.
The 25-year-old has had to endure a nervous few months having been without a club since leaving French side Lorient at the end of last season.
However the former Rangers midfielder has now penned a deal until the end of the season, with the option of an additional year included in the contract.
The Tunisia international has been on trial with the Bundesliga club throughout December and impressed manager Robin Dutt enough to secure full-time terms.
Meanwhile Freiburg have allowed Cameroon midfielder Alain Junior Olle Olle to join Bundesliga 2 side Rot-Weiss Ahlen on loan.
The 22-year-old has struggled to hold down a regular first-team place since signing in January 2008.
