Murillo: 'Samp an important club'

Jeison Murillo is “very happy to be back in Italy for an important club like Sampdoria” after flying in for his transfer from Valencia.

The former Inter defender only moved to Valencia in 2017 for €13m and spent the last six months on loan at Barcelona.

He arrived this evening in Genoa and spoke to Sky Sport Italia ahead of tomorrow’s medical.

“I am very happy to be back in Italy and we’ll see how it goes,” the 27-year-old Colombia international told Sky Sport Italia.

The deal is believed to be a €2m loan with obligation to buy at the end of the season for another €12m.

“Sampdoria are an important club. I hope to give my best. Forza Sampdoria.”
