Republic of Ireland international Steve Finnan has completed his move to Espanyol following the successful completion of a medical at the club this morning.

The 32-year-old left Liverpool on the last day of the transfer window but has yet to hook up with his new team-mates.

Finnan had been away on international duty last week with the Irish; Giovanni Trapattoni's side accrued four points from their opening two fixtures against Georgia and Montenegro.

The Limerick-native arrived in Barcelona only last night, and underwent a medical examination at the club's facility this morning.

He is due to be presented to the press as an Espanyol player at 1600CET.

A club statement reads: “Irish international Steve Finnan, Espanyol's last signing of the transfer window, underwent a medical examination this morning before joining up with the rest of [coach Tintin] Marquez's squad.

“The player was subject to stringent checks at the Clinica Creu Blanca, despite having checked over fully before signing his contract on the 31st of August.

“Finnan only arrived in Barcelona El Prat last night and was called straight up into the squad.

“This morning he missed training due to the medical tests but will be officially presented as a Perico this evening at the Estadi Olimpic de Lluis Companys.

“His first training session will have to wait until tomorrow morning and only then will he train with his new team-mates.â€
