Hertha Berlin have signed former Chelsea forward Salomon Kalou on a three-year contract, the Bundesliga club have announced.

The 29-year-old arrives for an undisclosed fee from Lille, with whom he had a contract until 2016, but had not played much recently.

"After my time in England and France, I'm really excited about playing for Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga now," said Kalou on his new club's official website.

"The club really worked hard trying to get me and I held good talks with the club's management.

"Berlin is a cosmopolitan, multicultural city and everything was right for me, not only from a sporting viewpoint."

Kalou scored 30 goals in 67 games for Lille, but appeared to have fallen out of favour over the summer.

The Ivory Coast forward previously spent six years with Chelsea, scoring 36 goals, while he has been capped 67 times by his country, scoring 23 goals.

"Salamon Kalou is a top striker who has already proven his strength in the Premier League and in the Champions League," said Hertha's director of sport Michael Preetz.

"He has a wealth of international experience and won the Champions League with Chelsea. We're delighted to have him."
