Official: Cassano-Samp contract terminated

It is now official – Antonio Cassano has terminated his contract with Sampdoria by mutual consent.

The agreement had been in the works for over a week.

He had been frozen out of the squad all season after refusing to accept a transfer, despite not being in Coach Marco Giampaolo’s plans.

This evening Sampdoria released a statement confirming Cassano had terminated the contract by mutual consent.

He is now a free agent and can sign for anyone even after the January transfer window closes.

Cassano has been given permission to continue training with the Sampdoria Primavera youth team.
