Parma forward Graziano Pellé will end the campaign on loan at Serie B outfit Sampdoria.
The port club have this afternoon announced the capture of the former Italian Under-21 international.
As part of the deal, Doria will have an option to sign a 50 per cent share in him at the end of the season.
Pellé, now 26, scored just two goals in 13 games for Parma following his summer switch from AZ Alkmaar.
