Former Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has finally found a new club after joining Venezia.
The 34-year-old left the Red Devils in the summer when his contract expired and he has held talks with several teams.
He now has a deal with Italian miners until June and would like to help the 17th-placed Serie A team beat the drop.
The Argentine stopper also has the option of staying for an additional year if all goes according to plan.
Venezia previously issued a statement confirming the news, saying: “Venezia FC is pleased to announce the signing of 34-year-old Sergio Romero, Argentine goalkeeper, on a free transfer.
“Romero is Argentina’s all-time highest goalscorer and last played for Manchester United. You’re welcome, Sergio.”
Romero came close to joining Everton twice, only to collapse both times for a transfer.
He has also discussed terms with LaLiga sides Valencia and Granada.
And potential switches for Roma and Spezia ended when financial constraints prompted them to look elsewhere.
Romero impressed as David de Gea’s deputy after coming to Old Trafford in 2015.
But the emergence of Dean Henderson on the scene at United left him frustrated with a lack of playing time and the reason for his departure.
Romero’s wife also expressed her anger on social media after she was refused a loan to Everton last year.
The Toffees were prepared to cover his £100,000-a-week salary and pay a £2m fee to secure his services.
However, United demanded a permanent £8m fee, despite having entered the final 12 months of his contract.
