Parma have officially loaned defender Fabiano Santacroce to Serie B side Padova.
The defender turns 27 later this month and Napoli sold him to Parma in July 2012 for €0.9m.
Once an Italy international, Santacroce made only eight Serie A appearances and one Coppa Italia game last season.
He is eager to get more regular playing time and can achieve that in Serie B with Padova.
