Dell'Orco to Lecce, Babacar to follow

Cristian Dell’Orco has completed his move to Lecce and Sassuolo striker Khouma Babacar is expected to follow suit.

Defender Dell’Orco signed the contract today, joining newly-promoted Lecce on loan with option to buy at the end of the season.

Forward Babacar, formerly of Fiorentina, is also expected to play at the Stadio Via del Mare in the 2019-20 campaign.

His name was not included in the list of squad numbers released by Sassuolo today, confirming he is not part of their plans.

The 26-year-old Senegal international cost €10m to purchase from Fiorentina, but last season managed only seven goals and two assists in 29 Serie A appearances.
