Cagliari have signed Sampdoria midfielder Daniele Dessena.
The Italy Under 21 international has opted to leave Sampdoria for a new challenge at Cagliari.
Dessena is delighted to be making the move to Cagliari after attracting interest from other clubs.
"I'm delighted to sign for Cagliari and I am just glad this whole saga is finally over," said Dessena.
"I spoke to several friends - people like Francesco Pisano, Robert Acquafresca, and Gianfranco Zola - and they all said that Cagliari was the ideal place for me. I feel honoured to wear the Rossoblu shirt."
Cagliari have also snapped up Juventus defender Lorenzo Ariaudo on loan.
Meanwhile, Sampdoria have brought in Empoli forward Nicola Pozzi on a loan agreement.
Pozzi has agreed a season-long loan deal and will add options to Gigi Del Neri's attacking alternatives.
