Official: Demme joins Napoli

Napoli have officially signed Diego Demme from RB Leipzig in a deal worth a reported €13m.

The 28-year-old midfielder had his medical on Friday and put pen to paper on the contract in Rome today.

It was confirmed by a tweet from President Aurelio De Laurentiis: “Welcome Diego!”

In fact, Demme was named Diego after Napoli legend Diego Armando Maradona.
