Diamanti joins Bologna
Bologna have won the race to sign sought-after midfielder Alessandro Diamanti. The 28-year-old, who won his first cap with Italy just last year, has been linked to a number of clubs after Brescia was relegated last term.
Serie A rivals Sampdoria and Fiorentina had both reportedly been keen on the former West Ham United player, but Bologna confirmed his signature this evening.
"Bologna FC 1909 is able to communicate that we have have reached an agreement with Brescia Calcio for the transfer of Alessandro Diamanti on a co-ownership deal," said a statement on the club's official website.
