Kapo, 31, emerged from the youth system at the French club and spent five years in the first team before departing for Juventus in 2004.

Now the former France international, who was a free agent, has rejoined the club on a deal that runs until the summer of 2013.

Kapo has had a nomadic existence since his move to Juventus, with his career taking in spells in Spain, England, Scotland, France again and Qatar.

The forward represented both Birmingham City and Wigan in the Premier League and was released by SPL side Celtic last January.

A subsequent spell with Al Ahly also ended with his release last summer.
