Palermo coach Stefano Colantuono is delighted with their summer spending.

"The club has built a well-balanced squad in all areas," Colantuono declared in La Sicilia.

"We have laid the foundations for a project that will give excellent results very quickly,

"This year we are almost starting from scratch because we have brought in 11 new players, but our aim is just to touch up what we were doing at the end of last season."
