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."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
