Bologna have confirmed that Gaston Ramirez's move to Premier League side Southampton is indeed complete.
Gazzetta dello Sport had reported that the deal was done at 17.58 UK time, but neither club had confirmed the news until now.
Ramirez and the Emilia Romagna outfit had been at loggerheads over the move, with President Albano Guaraldi criticising the playes' attitude.
The Rossoblu have also announced the return of Greek midfielder Panagiotis Kone, who spent last season on loan at the club. A co-ownership deal has been struck with his parent club Brescia.
