Roma sell Tachtsidis to Genoa

Roma have sold midfielder Panagiotis Tachtsidis to Genoa, while Italy Under-21 international Andrea Bertolacci renews his co-ownership.

Tachtsidis was a controversial figure this season, as he was brought in on the specific request of Coach Zdenek Zeman, who often used the Greek player instead of fan favourite Daniele De Rossi.

When Zeman was fired in February, Tachtsidis fell off the radar of the first team, so Roma have now agreed to sell their 50 per cent of his contract back to Genoa.

On the other hand, Roma youth product Bertolacci will stay on in Genoa for one more season after renewing his co-ownership status.

The Lupi announced several different deals with Pescara, bringing back Gianluca Caprari and sending Gianmario Piscitella and Federico Viviani to the Delfini.

Valerio Verre returns to the Olimpico base after his spell with Siena.
