The Flying Donkeys have added no fewer than 10 new recruits to their squad as they look to improve on a 16th-placed finish, with Izco becoming the second player to join from Catania by following striker Maxi Lopez to Verona.

A statement published on Chievo's official website said the 31-year-old from Buenos Aires had signed a three-year contract at the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi.

Izco, who made 218 league appearances across eight seasons with Catania, will be presented to the media on Monday.

Head coach Eugenio Corini has also signed defenders Cristiano Biraghi, Alessandro Gamberini and Edimar, midfielders Nicola Bellomo and Thomas Mangani, and wingers Riccardo Meggiorini and Valter Birsa.

Goalkeepers Francesco Bardi and Marcos Miranda are further notable additions and will provide competition for established number one stopper Christian Puggioni.

The Premier League: As Crazy As A Bag Of Snakes

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
