Reggina have signed starlet Nickie Bille Nielsen from Danish outfit BK Frem.
The 18-year-old has signed a three-year deal at the Stadio Oreste Granillo and is tipped to go onto big things after turning down the possibility of a move to The Premiership.
"Nickie is one of the biggest talents Frem have produced in many years and I am certain that he will have a bright international future," club director Hans Hermansen stated.
"Actually, Nickie had to interrupt a trial in England, where several of the biggest clubs were interested when the offer from Italy arrived."
Reggina midfielder Davide Biondini (pictured) has meanwhile made a move to Cagliari on loan for the season in search of regular first team football, while the Sardinian side have sold Andrea Cossu to Serie B side Verona.
