Poulsen makes Anfield exit

BY foxsports • August 31, 2011

The 31-year-old Denmark international - a Roy Hodgson signing last summer - has been out of favour at Anfield ever since Kenny Dalglish took over in January. Poulsen, 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."
