Rosati to Napoli not complete

Lecce have revealed that Antonio Rosati's move to Champions League qualifiers Napoli has yet to be completed.

Azzurri chief Aurelio De Laurentiis yesterday declared that the goalkeeper had been captured by his club.

"Rosati is not yet a Napoli player," Lecce sporting director Carlo Osti told Radio CRC on Tuesday afternoon.

"There is still no agreement between the two sides and, as far as I know, Napoli haven't agreed terms with the player either.

"Napoli are certainly the most interested side and we are only dealing with them, but a deal has to be in place in order for a transfer to be completed."

The shot-stopper is being targeted by the San Paolo outfit to be a reserve to Morgan De Sanctis, but Osti believes he will eventually be the No 1.

"Rosati is an excellent goalkeeper," added the official. "De Sanctis is one of the best in Italy, but I presume that Rosati will find space at Napoli."

Rosati, born in Tivoli in 1983, has been on Lecce's books since 2002. He spent the 2005-06 campaign at Sambenedettese.
