2nd-division Metz signs veteran Sylvain Wiltord

Second-division Metz has signed veteran French striker Sylvain Wiltord in a bid to boost its promotion bid.
The club said on its Web site Saturday that it signed the 35-year-old Wiltord after several days of negotiations.
No transfer fee was involved as Wiltord was without a club. No other details were given, but the Web site of sports daily L'Equipe said the contract is until the end of the season.
Metz is in seventh place in the second-tier league, four points behind the third promotion place.
Wiltord scored the equalizing goal in the closing seconds of the match when France won the European Championship final against Italy 10 years ago. He scored 26 goals in 92 appearances for France.
