Palermo have loaned Manuele Blasi from Napoli for the remainder of the campaign with the option of a permanent transfer next summer.
The former Juventus and Fiorentina midfielder has admitted that it took him a long time to decide to leave Napoli.
"I have had two wonderful years in Naples and it has not been easy for me to decide to leave," the 29-year-old explained.
"However, when you realise you are no longer in a club's plans it is useless to remain. Therefore I thought that it was right to join a club who wants me."
Meanwhile, Catania and Chievo have been doing last minute business. Giovanni Marchese joins Catania while Gennaro Sardo heads in the opposite direction.
The Sicilians have also picked up Simone Pesce in a co-ownership deal with Ascoli, while Chievo have snapped up defender Felice Piccolo from Empoli and striker Elvis Abbruscato from Torino.
