Official: Samuel signs for Basel

Ex-Inter defender Walter Samuel has officially joined Swiss club Basel.

"I am very happy and can't wait to get started."

The 36-year-old was a free agent after his contract with the Nerazzurri was allowed to expire.

FC Basel convinced him with their project for the season and he signed a one-year contract.

Samuel had been in advanced negotiations with Sampdoria, but was unsure about facing Inter as an opponent.
