Serie A side Roma completed the signing of Montenegro striker Mirko Vucinic from Lecce for 12 million euros on Friday, the club announced on their website.

The teams had each owned a half share in Vucinic who has spent the last two seasons with Roma on loan. The Montenegrin hit nine goals in 34 games in Serie A and four in eight UEFA Champions League matches in 2007-08.

Vucinic joined Roma in August 2006 and in his first season with the club the 24-year-old found the net three times.

His best season was 2004-2005 when he scored 19 goals in 28 matches for Lecce under former Roma coach Zednek Zeman.
