Parma president Tommaso Ghirardi is proud of their deal for former Chelsea striker Fabio Borini.

Parma beat Swansea City for the Italy U21 international.

"The arrival of Fabio is one of the most satisfying things since I took over at Parma," said the Gialloblu President.

"Everyone wanted him, but we were able to convince him to join us.

"The fact that we at Parma could offer him space in the first team and the right environment to do well probably favoured us."
