Evian complete deal for Poulsen
French club Evian have confirmed the signing of Liverpool midfielder Christian Poulsen.
Poulsen, 31, was a Roy Hodgson signing last summer and has been out of favour at Anfield ever since Kenny Dalglish took over in January.
The Denmark international, 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.''
