Riccardo Zampagna has signed a new contract with Atalanta through to 2009.

"When you have a common objective like the Atalanta project, you cannot help but sit around a table and discuss it all together to achieve that. The club and I moved towards each other to reach a deal," said the striker.

Piacenza have also decided not to take up their option on Andrea Lazzari, so the Under-21 international returns to Atalanta.
