The 31-year-old playmaker has penned a three-year contract with the Rossoblu.

It was expected that Santana would be on the move this summer after falling out of favour at Napoli.

He spent the 2012/13 campaign on loan at Torino and remained on the fringes of the fold after returning to Naples.

Santana is delighted to have secured a permanent switch elsewhere and is looking forward to working under new Genoa boss Fabio Liverani - a man he played alongside during their days together at Fiorentina.

He told Pianetagenoa1893.net: "I cannot wait to get started.

"I know Liverani very well and he convinced me to choose Genoa during a phone conversation."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
