Liverpool midfielder Christian Poulsen signed by Evian
Wednesday 31 August 2011
French club Evian have confirmed the signing of Liverpool midfielder Christian Poulsen.
The 31-year-old Denmark international - a Roy Hodgson signing last summer - has been out of favour at Anfield ever since Kenny Dalglish took over in January.
Poulsen, who did not play a match for the Reds after their Europa League tie in Braga in March, has signed a one-year contract with the Ligue 1 newcomers.
"It's official, Patrick Trotignon, the president of the SASP and Pascal Dupraz, the sports director, presented their latest recruit on Wednesday afternoon at the training centre," said a statement on the French club's website www.etgfc.com.
"Christian Poulsen was hired for a season from Liverpool."
A statement from Liverpool said: "Liverpool have today confirmed that Christian Poulsen has completed his transfer to Evian Thonon Gaillard.
"The Danish midfielder moves to the French side after making 21 appearances in just over a year at Anfield.
"Everyone at Liverpool Football Club would like to wish Christian the best of luck with his future career."
