Reggina have completed the signing of striker Stephen Makinwa from Lazio for an undisclosed fee.

The Nigerian international had fallen out of favour at the Stadio Olimpico after starting just six games this term.

And, following the arrival of highly-rated Rolando Bianchi, the 24-year-old felt it time to move on with his chances of making the squad even slimmer.

Set to link up with his new team-mates after his return from the Africa Cup of Nations, Makinwa is still finalising personal terms with the club as he is co-owned by Palermo and all sides must approve the deal.
