Report: Giovinco joins Parma today

Posted on 05/08/2010


There are reports that Sebastian Giovinco will complete his co-ownership move to Parma today following a meeting with Juventus.

Late last night rumours emerged that talks between Juve transfer guru Beppe Marotta and Ducali director general Pietro Leonardi had reached an agreement.

The ‘Atomic Ant’ also had an offer from Bari, but made it clear he would prefer the Stadio Tardini.

Initially Parma had insisted they would not accept a loan switch, but it seems the two clubs have reached a compromise.

The Gialloblu will pay €500,000 to have Giovinco on loan for this season and an option to buy up half his contract in June 2011.

It is reported that the deal for the Under-21 international will be finalised today and a formal announcement could be within hours.
