Bettarini picked up by Parma

Parma FC have signed left-back Stefano Bettarini on loan from UC Sampdoria until the end of the season.

Suspension complete
Bettarini, who will turn 33 in February, is now eligible to play after being suspended for five months in August following an investigation into claims of match-fixing involving players from several Serie A clubs.

European run
Bettarini, capped once by Italy last year, has also played for Cagliari Calcio, ACF Fiorentina, Bologna FC and AC Venezia during his Serie A career. Parma are third from bottom in Serie A with 19 points from 20 games, and will face German club VfB Stuttgart in the last 32 of the UEFA Cup next month.
