Catania confirm Peruzzi swoop

Argentine international defender Gino Peruzzi has completed his move from Velez Sarsfield to Catania.

The 21-year-old arrived in Sicily on Tuesday where he passed his medical before putting his signature on a four-year contract.

It is understood that the stopper has cost the Italian outfit a fee in the region of €3.5m. Velez, however, will get 15 per cent of any future transfer fee once Catania sell him on.

The South American was being tracked by a number of English clubs, including Manchester City and Sunderland.

Peruzzi, though, could miss the start of the season given that he has been struggling with a knee problem which may require surgery.

Peruzzi has won four international caps.
