Official: Villarreal sign Sansone

Villarreal have officially confirmed the signing of Sassuolo forward Nicola Sansone on a five-year contract.

It emerged in recent days that the Submarino Amarillo were in talks to sign the 24-year-old, and he took a medical in Spain today.

With the Neroverdi man having been given the all-clear, he has now officially completed his move to La Liga.

“Villarreal CF and US Sassuolo have come to an agreement for the transfer of Nicola Sansone, who will wear Yellow for the next five seasons,” a statement on the clubs website confirmed.

“The versatile, attacking player was born in Germany, but like his new teammate Roberto Soriano, he also has an Italian passport. In fact, Sansone has played 16 matches for the Italian youth teams and one match with the Italy senior side.

“The date of Sansone’s presentation as a new Villarreal CF player will be announced shortly.”
