Salomon Kalou has joined Botafogo after leaving Hertha Berlin.

The Ivory Coast forward's contract with Bundesliga side Hertha expired at the end of last month, making him a free agent after a six-year spell in German football.

Kalou has not had long to wait to find a new club, however, securing a move to Brazil after talks with Botafogo got under way last month. 

There was no confirmation of the length of the contract the 34-year-old former Chelsea man has signed. 

Ex-Japan playmaker Keisuke Honda will be among Kalou's new team-mates.
