Malian international defender Djimi Traore signed for French first division side Monaco on Thursday from English Premier League outfit Portsmouth, the French club announced.
The 29-year-old, who was loaned to recently promoted Premier League side Birmingham last season, has signed a two-year contract with the 2004 Champions League finalists.
Traore began his career with French team Laval before signing for Liverpool at the age of 18.
The long-limbed left-back won several trophies while on Merseyside, including the 2005 Champions League following a memorable penalty shootout victory over AC Milan in Istanbul.
Traore, who also won the FA Cup in 2001 and 2006 as well as the 2001 and 2003 League Cup and the 2001 UEFA Cup, has played for Charlton and French side Rennes since leaving Liverpool.
