Cesena have confirmed the capture of Italian international Antonio Candreva from Udinese.
The Sea Horses have been chasing the creative player for some weeks and a deal has finally been agreed.
The attacking midfielder, who can be used in any role across the midfield, has joined the outfit on loan.
At the end of the 2011-12 campaign, Cesena will then have the option to sign a 50 per cent share in the 24-year-old.
Candreva, formerly of Livorno and Juventus, spent last season on loan at Parma where he scored three League goals in 31 appearances.
He will join up with his new teammates later today at their pre-season training base at Acquapartita.
