Manchester City striker Valeri Bojinov is back in Serie A after joining newly-promoted Parma on loan.
The 23-year-old Bulgaria international endured an injury-hit spell at Eastlands, making just three Premier League starts in two years.
Bojinov did look a talented prospect when fit, but the summer arrivals of three big name strikers means his playing time would have been severely limited next season.
The captures of Roque Santa Cruz, Carlos Tevez and Emmanuel Adebayor means Bojinov joins Felipe Caicedo in sealing a loan move away from the City of Manchester Stadium.
The marksman, formerly of Juventus, Fiorentina and Lecce, claims the Stadio Ennio Tardini outfit were the only Italian club chasing his signature.
"Parma were the only team that wanted me and they did everything to have me here," Bojinov confirmed. "I am happy and hope to have fun.
"I know we will have a good time together. We have to work hard and show our worth. We have to understand we need to honour the shirt for the club and the fans. We have to work towards our objective, and that is to do well in Serie A.
"Parma are an important team and I am looking ahead. Following my past injuries, I am hoping to do well.
"I understand Parma will give me great satisfaction this season and I hope to be fully ready for the start of the season."
