Cagliari have officially signed David Suazo after a disappointing spell at Inter and send Andrea Lazzari to Fiorentina “with a heavy heart.”
The Honduran international hitman was a hero for the Stadio Sant'Elia fans and left to test himself at Inter in 2007.
He barely featured for the Nerazzurri and had several loan spells at Benfica and Genoa.
Suazo returns to Cagliari on a permanent basis with a one-year contract and an option to extend for a second term.
The news comes on the day Cagliari also sent midfielder Lazzari to Fiorentina on a co-ownership deal.
“On the one side I am happy to give Andrea this great opportunity, but on the other it's a shame to lose such a talented and lovely guy,” said President Massimo Cellino.
“I handed him over with a heavy heart, because I am fond of him and he is a fantastic player. I'll also confirm he turned down several clubs, including Milan in January.”
