Genoa have signed free agent Ahmed Barusso, but the Serie A club are set to immediately loan him out to another outfit.
The Ghanaian, who spent last season at Nocerina, has been picked up on a free transfer after his contract at Roma expired.
Reports today suggest that Serie B side Novara are keen on taking the player following their relegation from the top flight.
Capital club Roma signed the 28-year-old in the summer of 2007 from Rimini, but he made just three appearances for the club before a long line of loan deals at teams such as Galatasaray, Brescia and Torino.
