Everton defender Shkodran Mustafi has left the Club to join Italian outfit Sampdoria.
German born of Albanian descent, Mustafi joined Everton from Hamburg in the summer of 2009 but has failed to break through into the first team picture.
Indeed, his only outing at senior level was the Europa League match against BATE Borisov at Goodison Park in December 2009.
Genoa-based Sampdoria are currently playing their football in Serie B in Italy after being relegated from Serie A at the end of last season.
There is no fee involved in Mustafi’s move.
