Official: Sampdoria sign Praet

Sampdoria have officially confirmed the signing of Dennis Praet from Anderlecht.

The 23-year-old midfielder arrived in Italy for his medical over the weekend, and to sign a five-year contract worth €1.2m per season.

Despite that, it had not officially been confirmed until this afternoon that the €10m transfer had been done.

“U.C Sampdoria announces the signing of the player Dennis Praet outright from RSC Anderlecht,” a statement on the Blucerchiati’s website confirmed.

It remains to be seen how long Praet’s stay at Marassi will be, however, with rumours that he has a €28m release clause.
