Parma president Ghirardi: De Melo our signing

Parma president Tommaso Ghirardi is adamant Le Mans striker Tulio de Melo will join them at the end of the season.

He said: "I am sorry for this row with Palermo, but we burned the Rosanero on time.

"The player was naive because he signed two contracts, committed to two clubs, but we have put him under contract before the Rosa. The relations between us and Palermo are great, I am sorry."
