AZ Alkmaar have confirmed goalkeeper Sergio Romero has signed for Sampdoria in a deal worth 3.5million euros (£3.1m).
The 24-year-old was said to be looking for a new challenge after four years in Holland and still had two years left on his old contract.
During his time with Alkmaar he helped them to claim the Eredivisie title and the Dutch Cup.
Romero was Argentina's first-choice goalkeeper at the 2010 World Cup and this summer's Copa America.
