The 26-year-old spent last season on loan at FC Internazionale Milano, appearing three times in the UEFA Champions League and 14 times in Serie A as the Nerazzurri won the Scudetto. He had previously played 51 games for Palermo, scoring four goals since joining from Argentinian side Racing Club de Avellaneda ahead of the 2004/05 campaign.
