Sampdoria have announced that they will sign Heerenveen and Norway midfielder Morten Thorsby this summer.

The deal was confirmed in a statement on Samp’s official website, with Thorsby signing a four-year contract that will take effect at the end of the season.

The 22-year-old will also arrive on a free transfer, given his link with Heerenveen expires on June 30.

Thorsby has scored five goals and assisted three times this season for the Dutch side, who are 10th in the Eredivisie, and has one cap for his native Norway.
