Saponara ready for Lecce

Riccardo Saponara is on the verge of a transfer to Lecce, interrupting his Genoa loan from Fiorentina, claim Sportitalia.

Their interest had already been noted, but this evening transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà reports all the clubs have reached an agreement.

Saponara is owned by Fiorentina and spent the first six months of the season on loan at Genoa, but made only four five competitive appearances, scoring a goal in the Coppa Italia.

Genoa had an option to buy for €3.8m, but it remains to be seen if the same terms have simply been passed on to Lecce.
