Sampdoria clinch deal for Leicester outcast Adrien Silva

Leicester City are releasing Portugal midfielder Adrien Silva to join Sampdoria on a free transfer, Gianluca Di Marzio reports.

The 31-year-old cost Leicester a fee of €25m three years ago, but has made just 21 appearances.

For the past one and a half seasons, Silva has been on loan at Monaco in France.

Brendan Rodgers confirmed earlier this month that Silva was not in Leicester’s plans and a solution has now been found.

The Foxes are tearing up Silva’s contract a year early, which enables him to join Sampdoria for free.

Sampdoria are coached by Claudio Ranieri, who famously led Leicester to the 2015-16 Premier League title.

Former Sporting CP star Silva will replace Ronaldo Vieira, who is heading to Hellas Verona.

3/10 UPDATE:

Sampdoria have announced the signing of Adrien Silva on a two-year deal.
