Burdisso and Motta to Genoa

Genoa have reportedly signed Nicolas Burdisso from Roma and taken Marco Motta on loan from Juventus.

The Grifone are reinforcing their squad over the January transfer window under the orders of Coach Gian Piero Gasperini.

According to several different sources, this evening they completed two new moves.

Burdisso had said he wanted to leave Roma in order to have more playing time ahead of the World Cup.

The Argentina international seems to have his wish, as he is joining Genoa on a permanent transfer.

Genoa also picked up full-back Motta on loan from Juventus, just days after a similar deal was struck for Paolo De Ceglie.
