Liverpool midfielder Christian Poulsen has agreed to sign for French club Evian.

The 31-year-old only joined 12 months ago for former boss Roy Hodgson but has failed to settle on Merseyside.

The Denmark international has been out of favour at Anfield ever since Kenny Dalglish took over in January, and has not played since the Europa League tie in Braga in March.

He has agreed 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.”

Poulsen will join former team-mate Joe Cole in Ligue 1 next season, who today joined Lille on a season-long loan.
