Sky Sport Italia are claiming that Davide Ballardini has put pen to paper on a contract with Serie A side Cagliari.
Ballardini has joined the club for the third time in his career after the outfit sacked Massimo Ficcadenti on Tuesday.
An official announcement is expected later today and the tactician, who recently rejected offers from Bologna and Cesena, could be unveiled to the media at some point this afternoon.
