Paletta: Returning to Europe
Parma have finally completed their long pursuit of Gabriel Paletta by sealing the signature of the former Liverpool defender.
The Italian club have been tracking the Boca Juniors centre-back for some time, but his injury problems prevented a deal.
However, the 24-year-old has now completed his move and will be unveiled on Wednesday afternoon, when further details of the transfer will be revealed.
Paletta spent a season at Liverpool, but only made three Premier League appearances, although he did score in the 4-3 Carling Cup victory over Reading, before returning to Argentina in 2007.
The Buenos Aires-born player made seven appearances for Argentina's Under 20 team, but has yet to represent the senior side.
