FC Porto have announced the signing of Italian striker Dani Osvaldo on a free transfer.

Argentinean-born Oslvaldo was released by Southampton earlier in the summer following an uneventful spell in the English Premier League and with two years left in his contract.

The 29-year-old, who joined The Saints from AS Roma for a club record £15m in 2013, scored just three goals in 14 Premier League games.

He was farmed out on loan to Italian sides Inter Milan, Juventus and most recently Boca Juniors in Argentina during his stay at St. Mary’s.

Osvaldo was suspended for a training-ground fight with team-mate Jose Fonte in January 2014 and has not played for The Saints since then.

He will look to reignite his career at Porto, who had been short in attacking options following the departure of Jackson Martinez to Atletico Madrid.

Osvaldo, who has not spent more than two seasons in either of his previous twelve clubs, has signed a one-year contract with Porto with an option to further three years extension.

He has been capped 14 times by Italy and scored four goals.
