Parma announce triple swoop

Parma have announced a triple signing.

Parma have officially signed Chelsea striker Fabio Borini, AZ Alkmaar's Graziano Pellè and Nicola Sansone from Bayern Munich.

The Ducali had already secured deals for these players some time ago, but only made them official today with a statement on the club website.

Borini is an Under-21 international who struggled to find space at Chelsea, so makes his return to Italy on a free transfer.

He first joined the Stamford Bridge outfit from Bologna in 2007 and spent the last six months on loan at Swansea City.

Pellè has a history at Lecce, but couldn't find a Serie A side willing to give him first team football in Italy, so moved to Holland for AZ Alkmaar.

Sansone is a 19-year-old forward who was born in Foggia, but moved to Germany during his childhood and started in the Bayern youth academy at age 10.

He is also a free transfer, as Bayern released all the players from the reserve team when it was relegated from the 3rd Liga.

Sansone has played for Italy at Under-17, Under-18 and Under-19 levels.
