[Mercato] Carrozzieri pens Palermo contract

Palermo have officially signed Atalanta giant Moris Carrozzieri, while Genoa complete their capture of Matteo Paro.

The Rosanero announced this evening they had put pen to paper on a four-year contract with central defender Carrozzieri.

"Palermo have completed the permanent signing from Atalanta of Moris Carrozzieri, born in Giulianova on November 16, 1980.

"Carrozzieri, who put together 20 appearances and two goals in the last Serie A season, has signed a four-year contract with the club."

It is only the latest in a series of deals between these two sides, as Palermo coach Stefano Colantuono shot to fame when he took Atalanta to promotion.

"I am satisfied with the transfer campaign," explained the tactician on Radio Kiss Kiss.

"We have achieved all our objectives and now just need to complete the mosaic with a final piece, because all the players who left have been adequately replaced."

Carrozzieri comes in to replace central defender Leandro Rinaudo, who has joined Napoli.

Today is the deadline for co-ownership deals in Italy and so clubs have been scurrying to reach an agreement or face a blind auction.

Genoa have signed the other 50 per cent of midfielder Paro's contract from Juventus, paying £1.3m for the youngster.
