Sampdoria have officially sold Gaetano Berardi to Massimo Cellino’s Leeds United for an undisclosed fee.
The 25-year-old right-back is a Swiss international, as he was born and raised in Switzerland from Italian parentage.
He first came to Italy in 2005 for Brescia and joined Sampdoria in January 2012.
Berardi can also play left-back or on either side of midfield.
