Dani Osvaldo signs for Boca Juniors after troubled spell in Europe

Dani Osvaldo had previously spent a spell on loan at Boca Juniors.

Dani Osvaldo has sealed a permanent return to Argentina and Boca Juniors after several turbulent years in Europe.

Osvaldo, 29, fell out with the Roma hierarchy before moving to Southampton for £12.8 million in August 2013.

He managed only 13 Premier League appearances for the Saints, however, with disciplinary issues -- including a bust-up with Jose Fonte -- leading him to return to Italy on loan with Juventus and then Inter Milan.

A successful stint at Boca followed and, despite the fact he joined Porto following his release by Southampton last August, he has now opted to move to La Bombonera after rescinding his contract with the Dragons.

A tweet from Boca showed Osvaldo reuniting with his teammates and read: "Welcome home, @DaniStone!''

"Since I left, I was eager to return," Osvaldo, who was born in Argentina, is quoted as saying on the club's official Twitter feed. "I am very happy [here], enjoying the early days of preseason. I'm focused on working hard."
