Official: Klavan joins Cagliari

Cagliari have officially signed defender Ragnar Klavan from Liverpool, just getting the paperwork sorted before the transfer deadline.

The Isolani agreed a deal to buy the centre-back for around €2m - €1.3m up-front with €700,000 in potential bonuses - and he took his medical this afternoon.

It was a race against time for the Estonia international, but Cagliari registered the contract with the Lega Serie A just 10 minutes before the deadline.

He signed a two-year contract with option for a third.

“Ragnar Klavan has completed a permanent transfer to Serie A side Cagliari,” confirmed a Liverpool statement.

“The Estonia international leaves Liverpool after a two-year spell on Merseyside that included 53 appearances and two goals for the club.

“Klavan joined the Reds from FC Augsburg in the summer of 2016 and played 25 times during his debut season, scoring once – in a League Cup tie at Derby County.

“The centre-back featured in 28 games last term, including eight Champions League appearances as Liverpool reached the final, and claimed a memorable winning goal in stoppage-time against Burnley.

“Klavan sealed the formalities of his switch to Cagliari on Friday ahead of their first game of the Serie A season, at Empoli on Sunday.

“Everybody at LFC wishes Ragnar the best of luck for the future.”
