Salernitana have officially signed former Chievo midfielder Joel Chukwuma Obi, reports.

The newly-promoted club finished second in Serie B last season, behind title winners Empoli, and gained their spot in Serie A along with play-off victors Venezia.

Obi had long been linked with Salernitana after his contract with Chievo was allowed to expire, but some issues emerged in negotiations.

Those were resolved and the forgotten Super Eagles star officially signed for Salernitana today.

It is a one-year deal with option to extend, which becomes automatic if they stay in Serie A.

The former Inter Milan, Parma and Torino midfielder last featured for Nigeria in 2018.
