Liverpool midfielder Christian Poulsen signed by Evian

French club Evian have confirmed the signing of Liverpool midfielder Christian Poulsen.

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

"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."
