DONE DEAL: Sampdoria 'buy' Leicester midfielder Adrien Silva

Sampdoria have completed the signing of Leicester City midfielder Adrien Silva.

Samp have coughed up a fee to buy Silva from Leicester City, signing a contract to June 2022.

It's reported to be practically a free transfer, allowing him to leave a year before his deal was due to end.

Silva had gone to Monaco on loan in January 2019.

The 31-year-old was born in France, but is a Portugal international with 26 senior caps and one goal.
