RCD Espanyol have made the Cameroon defender Pierre Womé their third summer signing. Womé arrives at the Barcelona club on a two-year contract having left English club Fulham FC on a free transfer.
Womé's representative, Pablo Teixeira, said his client "was delighted" with the move, and claimed he had turned down an offer from German side VfB Stuttgart because "he would rather play in Spain". "It was not a matter of money," Teixeira added.
Womé, 24, will link up with Espanyol's other new recruits, goalkeeper Erwin Lemmens and midfield player Tayfun Korbut, at the Montjuic stadium. A gold medal winner with Cameroon at the Sydney Olympics, the left-back's previous clubs include Bologna FC, AS Roma, Lucchese-Libertas and Vicenza Calcio.
