Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o has joined Serie A side U.C Sampdoria from Everton for an undisclosed fee, the Premier League club have announced.

Eto’o, 33, has penned a two-and-half-year deal with The Blue-ringed side after spending just 5 months at Goodison Park.

The deal had been confirmed by the Italian outfit in an official tweet last week which had Eto’o pictured in a Sampdoria shirt and scarf after passing his medicals.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez had in an interview with the club’s official website last Tuesday stated that a decision on the future of Eto’o would be taken in the next two weeks and that there was nothing concrete on the table. However, he thanked the former Cameroonian captain in a statement earlier today.

“We thank Samuel for his efforts and for bringing his know-how to the team and to Finch Farm where he passed on some of his terrific experience to all of the young players in particular.

“The memory of his performances in Europe stand out especially.”
