Official | French goalkeeper Benoît Costil signs for Salernitana

Serie A side Salernitana have this afternoon announced the signing of former French international goalkeeper Benoît Costil, with the 36-year-old putting pen to paper on a one-year deal.

The veteran arrives on a free transfer after the end of his short-term deal at the end of last season with Lille, who he had joined midway through the campaign from Auxerre. He would make 16 Ligue 1 appearances with the latter side, but would not feature for Les Dogues.

The Caen youth graduate had previously spent six years at Rennes, before staying for five campaigns at Bordeaux. He would eventally leave Les Girondins at the end of the 2021/22 season, which saw the team finish bottom of the top flight after conceding 91 goals over the league campaign.

Costil’s move to Campania will be his first time playing abroad, and he will notably cross paths with former Bordeaux manager Paulo Sousa again. In Salerno, he will also find two compatriots in former Montpellier man Junior Samba, and former French international Franck Ribéry in the technical staff.
