Sampdoria sign Birkir Bjarnason

Sampdoria complete a co-ownership deal with Pescara for Icelandic international midfielder Birkir Bjarnason.

Sampdoria have confirmed the signing of Icelandic international Birkir Bjarnason from Pescara in a co-ownership deal for an undisclosed fee.

Bjarnason spent last season on loan in Serie A with Pescara, with the Delfino taking up a permanent option on the midfielder despite getting relegated to Serie A.

Samp have agreed a move which see them share rights with Pescara for Bjarnason, with the 25-year-old spending this season in Genoa for an instant return to the Italian top flight.

Primarily a central midfielder, Bjarnason earned a move to Serie A last summer after impressing for Standard Liege, while also scoring three times in 22 appearances for his country.

Torino's Alessio Cerci is congratulated by team mates after scoring his team's second against Pescara on January 20, 2013
