US Città di Palermo have completed the signing of Polish international defender Kamil Glik from GKS Piast Gliwice for an undisclosed fee.

Capped five times by Poland, the 22-year-old Glik has committed to the Sicilian outfit until summer 2015. "I'm very happy to join Palermo, a prestigious club," he said. "I want to play all my cards here and maybe repeat the success of centre-back [Simon] Kjær, who has made his name here at Palermo." The Rosanero will play in the UEFA Europa League play-offs in August after finishing fifth in Serie A last term.
