Cagliari midfielder Pasquale Foggia has performed a U-turn and now insists he'd be happy to return to Lazio.

"I would happily have stayed in Rome," he told Teleradiostereo. "I knew that this would be an important season for the Biancocelesti with the Champions League campaign and Serie A.

"I never asked for a definite starting place, but just the chance to the compete. Deep down I've always hoped that I will return to Lazio, but Cagliari have the right to sign me if Lazio agree to sell."
