‘Dossena days away from Palermo’

Andrea Dossena is just a matter of hours away from completing a January move from Napoli to struggling Palermo.

“There should be a meeting this week,” agent Roberto La Florio told Sky Sport Italia. “The player’s wish is clear.

“He’s very happy with Palermo as a destination and they have been following him for some time. The move is days away.

“He’ll move on loan initially and then we’ll see what the situation is at the end of the season. What matters now is that the player gets to see regular action.”

The 31-year-old, signed by Napoli from Liverpool in January 2010, has played in only seven League games this term for a total of just 309 minutes.

Napoli could replace Dossena with Udinese’s Pablo Armero.
