Genoa have completed the signing of Argentina international Mario Santana from Serie A rivals Napoli.

The 31-year-old playmaker has penned a three-year contract with the Rossoblu.

It was expected that Santana would be on the move this summer after falling out of favour at Napoli.

He spent the 2012/13 campaign on loan at Torino and remained on the fringes of the fold after returning to Naples.

Santana is delighted to have secured a permanent switch elsewhere and is looking forward to working under new Genoa boss Fabio Liverani - a man he played alongside during their days together at Fiorentina.

He told "I cannot wait to get started.

"I know Liverani very well and he convinced me to choose Genoa during a phone conversation."
