January Series A transfers

Series A matches may not feature packed stadiums or such a passionate atmosphere that we can see in England and Spain, but Italy’s top flight proves that not everything can be measured by numbers.

There was a time when clubs like Palermo and Udinese couldn’t even dream about upsetting the order at the top of the standings, but that time has long gone, as the Rossoblu and Friulani, as well as few other smaller clubs now regularly beat top sides like Inter, Milan or Juventus, and are vying for Champions League qualification with the more illustrious sides.

It is not easy to stay in touch with the latest developments from the Serie A, especially if one doesn’t know the language, and that is exactly why we have created a section called Italian Serie A football transfers, which will help you keep track of every single top flight transfer announced in Italy.

With the majority of Serie A clubs very active in every transfer window, it is little wonder that Italian soccer transfers usually dominate the transfer news sections, so you can be sure that Italian Serie A Transfers page will be packed with the latest deals announced on club’s official websites.

One of the reasons why the clubs from Italy are world leaders when it comes to the number of players coming and going every transfer window is the co-ownership feature that is predominantly used and often exercised by Serie A clubs. This option allows a club to sell 50% of the player’s rights to another club while sending him on loan to the potential buyer, giving the seller a chance to buy back the player if he proves his potential elsewhere.

Here is a list of January 2012 transfers for Palermo:

Emiliano Viviano – Goalkeeper (Italy) – from Inter Milan

Eran Zahavi – Midfielder (Israel) – from Hapoel Tel Aviv

Massimo Donati – Midfielder (Italy) – from Bari

Franco Vazquez – Midfielder (Argentina) – from Belgrano

We will keep you updated if we hear any news.
