Transfer talk

Frey seals move to Genoa

August 2, 2011

Former France goalkeeper Sebastien Frey has completed his switch to Genoa from Fiorentina.

Fiorentina revealed the finishing touches on a five-year contract have been completed, after the deal had been revealed last week.

"ACF Fiorentina announces that it has sold, on a permanent basis, Sebastien Frey to Genoa CFC,'' a statement on the club's official website read. "The company thanks him for the seasons spent together and wish him the best achievements of success for the rest of his career.''

Frey spent six seasons with La Viola but had fallen down the pecking order at the club after a knee injury ruled him out for most of last season.

The 31-year-old, who made the last of his two France caps in 2008, is looking forward to resuming his career with Genoa.

"I can't wait to get started,'' he told Genoa's official website. "On Tuesday, I'll start house-hunting. I have already spoken to Dario (Dainelli, Genoa defender) and he's told me the club is like a big family.''
