Sampdoria seals Poulsen deal
Genoa, Italy (Sports Network) - Sampdoria wrapped up the signing of Danish winger Simon Poulsen on Monday, inking the former AZ Alkmaar man to a three- year contract.
The 27-year-old joins Sampdoria after his previous deal with AZ expired, and he will bring versatility to the club with his ability to play as a winger or a left back.
Poulsen has earned 21 caps for Denmark in his international career and featured for the team at this past summer's European Championships.
