Luis Muriel sent a message to Udinese fans after confirming “as of today I am a new Sampdoria player.”
The Colombian had been due to sign two weeks ago, but the move had to be renegotiated after he failed a medical due to a thigh injury.
“Thank you to everyone who made this dream possible,” wrote Muriel on Instagram with a photo of himself in the Sampdoria jersey.
“Thanks to President Ferrero and my agent who fought hard when everything seemed to be finished and got this deal to a positive ending.
“From today I am a new Sampdoria player. Thank you also to Udinese and those people who made my stay in Udine so pleasant. Thank you from the heart to the fans who believed in me right to the end.”
