[Mercato] Genoa secure Vanden Borre

Genoa have agreed a deal with Fiorentina for full rights to Belgian starlet Anthony Vanden Borre and seem to have landed Raffaele Palladino.

Fiorentina brought the Under-21 international to the peninsula last summer when they signed him from Anderlecht, but he wasn't part of coach Cesare Prandelli's first-team plans.

Genoa bought 50 per cent of the Congo-born 20-year-old's rights in January in a deal that saw striker Papa Waigo move the other way and now they own the player outright.

"The club would like to announce that a deal has been completed with Fiorentina to secure complete sporting rights to Belgian Under-21 player Vanden Borre," a statement from Genoa read.

Meanwhile, Genoa President Enrico Preziosi is certain that a deal for Juventus striker Raffaele Palladino has finally been agreed.

"He is a Genoa player," he told Radio Kiss Kiss. "The deal is completely done and I am happy because he is an important player."

However, there has been no official confirmation of Palladino's transfer and reports that he had signed last week proved to be premature.
