Catania have signed Romania international Nicolae Dica from Steaua Bucharest.
Dica has signed a four-year deal with the Sicilian club after agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.
The 28-year-old will help fill the void by Juan Manuel Vargas' expected departure to Fiorentina.
"Catania would like to communicate the arrival of Romanian international Nicolae Constantin Dica from Steaua Bucharest on a permanent basis," read a club statement.
"The player has signed a four-year deal and he will play for the Rossoblu until June 30, 2010."
