Lodi announces Catania return
Italian midfielder Francesco Lodi has announced he is returning to Catania after only six months with Genoa.
The 29-year-old broke news of the transfer via Twitter, saying: "Thanks Genoa, but it was time to return home. Thanks to those who have brought me back to this home, I'm delighted."
Lodi played for the Sicilian side for two seasons before moving to Genoa in the summer, but he has made only nine appearances for the Rossoblu and now returns south to try to save Catania from relegation.
