Inter v Celtic Europa LeagueSampdoria have lost out to Spanish outfit Celta Vigo in the race for goal poacher John Guidetti.

The 23-year-old Swedish international was a free agent since being released by Manchester City at the start of the month, and was linked with a number of sides around Europe, including the Blucerchiati.

Gazzetta.it reveals that Guidetti has chosen the La Liga as his next destination in his career, and will put pen to paper on a deal with Celta in the coming days.

With Samuel Eto’o exiting the club, and Stefano Okaka and Eder linked with exits – Sampdoria have been keen on reinforcing their strike-force, but must now focus on other targets.

Guidetti netted 15 goals in 35 appearances on loan at Celtic last season.
