Genoa sign Burdisso and Motta

Genoa have signed their second and third new defenders of the winter transfer window, with Marco Motta arriving from Juventus and Nicolas Burdisso joining from Roma.

Nicolas Burdisso joined Roma in 2009.

Former Inter Milan defender Burdisso, who had fallen down the pecking order in recent times, has signed a permanent deal with the Grifone.

Motta, 27, has made a temporary switch to Genoa but the deal includes the option for a permanent transfer. He had featured even more fleetingly for Juve, clocking up only 25 minutes of action in two brief substitute appearances.

He treads the same path taken a few days ago by Paolo De Ceglie, who was presented in the Ligurian city on Thursday.

"This is a big chance that I couldn't miss," De Ceglie, 27, said. "I'd been a lifetime with Juve, but I wasn't getting much of a chance lately and so I got the feeling it was time to change. I'm stimulated by this new situation."

Meanwhile, on a busy day of transfer activity in Genoa, midfielder Davide Biondini has been sent out on loan to Sassuolo.
