Siena have secured the loan signing of Dynamo Kiev flop Roberto Nanni.

The Argentinian striker joined the Ukrainian powerhouses in August 2003, but failed to fire in Kiev.

He joined Almeria on loan last autumn, but missed out on a permanent move to the Spanish second division side.

But he has been offered the chance to reignite his career in Italy after Siena brought him to the club on a season-long loan.

Siena, who recently lost the services of Tore Andre Flo, also have the option of a permanent deal and Nanni is overjoyed to have clinched the move.

"I had wanted to arrive in Italy before," Nanni told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"It has always been a dream for me. Now, I want to take this big chance with Siena."

The Serie A club are also still trying to finalise a deal with Middlesbrough to take Massimo Maccarone on loan again.
