[Mercato] Lille confirm De Melo capture

French club Lille have confirmed the signing of Tulio De Melo from Palermo on a four-year contract.

Tulio De MeloThe Brazilian striker only joined the Sicilian giants this summer but did not feature in the plans of new coach Stefano Colantuono.

The 23-year-old played just one game for Palermo in the Coppa Italia after an impressive three-year spell at Le Mans.

De Melo scored 22 goals in 72 appearances for Lille's Ligue 1 rivals and his new club will be hoping for a similar contribution on his return to France.
