Alou Diarra is back training with Charlton Athletic.
The French midfielder left after the Addicks were relegated from the Championship in 2016.
His contract was terminated by mutual consent and he went on to join Nancy, but left at the end of last season.
Charlton manager Karl Robinson told the club’s official website: “He still has a place locally and he’s spoken with Jacko, Kashi and a few others and wanted to come in. He’s an impeccable character, a complete professional and is a great role model for some of our young players to speak to, watch and learn from.”
