Eto'o: 'Ready for Samp challenge!'

Samuel Eto’o thanked staff after a Sampdoria medical and declared he is “ready for a new challenge!!!”

The Everton striker was in Rome on Saturday for the tests at the Villa Stuart clinic, which is also where he had his medical ahead of a move to Inter.

It was even suggested the venue was chosen because the clinic still had his paperwork and it would therefore speed up the process.

“Successful Medical. Thank you Dr Parfait Ondo. Ready for a new Challenge!!!” wrote Eto’o on Twitter.

The Cameroon legend will be at Marassi this afternoon and presented to the fans ahead of the Serie A match between Sampdoria and Palermo.

Everton have still released no statement on Eto’o, but he’s believed to be joining on a free transfer save for performance-related bonuses over the next 30 months of his contract.
