DONE DEAL: Celta Vigo snap up Sampdoria defender Jeison Murillo

Celta Vigo have snapped up Sampdoria defender Jeison Murillo.

Murillo returns to Celta on loan with an option to buy.

Samp signed the former Inter Milan centre-back for €13.3m in January 2020 and immediately loaned him to Celta for the remainder of the season.

The 28-year-old, who has previous spells at Barcelona and Valencia, has only played 12 games for Sampdoria.

“UC Sampdoria announce that they have loaned out the football player Jeison Murillo to Real Club Celta de Vigo with the option to buy," the club wrote in a statement.
