Lille has signed Palermo defender Mauro Cetto on-loan.

The 29-year-old defender spent nine years in France with Nantes and Toulouse, before he defected to Serie A last year.

"I have only just arrived here but I can already see the high level of the facilities they have here," he told

"The reception I received was great and I am delighted to be here. It is true that I found it difficult to adapt to life in Italy."
