Official: Udinese sign Forestieri

Udinese have officially signed Fernando Forestieri as a free agent after his contract with Sheffield Wednesday expired.

This is a return to Friuli for the 30-year-old forward, who already joined in 2010, eventually sold to Watford in 2013 after a series of loan spells.

Forestieri spent the last five seasons at Sheffield Wednesday and was released from his contract.

He has now signed a deal with Udinese until June 2022.

“Forestieri is an old friend of Udinese,” technical director Pierpaolo Marino told the club website.

“He left as a promising youngster and returns with the certainty he can give a strong contribution to the team. A player with his characteristics, creativity and finishing skills was missing from our squad.”

Born in Argentina, moving to Italy at the age of 16, he represented the Azzurri at youth level.

Forestieri has been in England for eight years at Watford and then Sheffield Wednesday.
