We round up some of the transfer deadline day deals that scraped in, including Fabio Borini to Roma and Santiago Silva for Fiorentina.

Roma snapped up Under-21 international striker Borini on loan from Parma. He had only come to the Tardini this summer on a free transfer from Chelsea.

Inter bought up Lorenzo Tassi in a co-ownership deal from Brescia. He is considered to be ‘the new Roberto Baggio.'

Fiorentina resolved the final red tape issues to complete their move for Velez Sarsfield striker Silva just before the deadline, paying $2m for his buy-out clause.

Cagliari bought Rui Sampaio from Beira-Mar, where he earned his place in the Portuguese Team of the Season.

“Negotiations were difficult, but now I'm so happy to be here in the best League in the world.”

Milan sold 17-year-old goalkeeper Tommaso Trani to Queen's Park Rangers.

Bologna signed Panagiotis Kone on loan from Brescia and sold half of Francesco Della Rocca's contract to Palermo.

Napoli sold midfielder Mariano Bogliacino to Serie B side Bari.

Atalanta bought Daniel Lucas Schelotto from Cesena. He is the younger brother of Italy Under-21 international Matias Ezequiel Schelotto.

Parma loaned midfielder Francesco Lunardini to Gubbio.

Lecce signed Under-20 Colombian international forward Luis Muriel from Udinese on a permanent basis.

Udinese also loaned Slovenian goalkeeper Jan Koprivec to Bari.
