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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
