OFFICIAL: Panagiotis Tachtsidis signs five-year deal with Roma
- Updated: July 20, 2012
The former AEK starlet has penned a five-year deal at the Stadio Olimpico after impressing while on loan with Verona last season…
Panagiotis Tachtsidis has put pen to paper on a massive, five-year deal with Serie A giants Roma after his new employers finally reached an agreement with Genoa over a co-ownership deal that sees Tachtsidis’ playing rights being held by both the Romans and the Grifone.
An announcement on the club’s official website also confirmed the terms of the transfer, including the transfer fee which is reported to be €2.5 million for 50 per cent of the midfielder’s rights; certainly a compliment to Tachtsidis, who never featured once for Genoa since coming over in a transfer from AEK in 2010.
The Nafplio native spent the last two seasons on loan at Cesena, Grosetto and Hellas Verona. Limited playing time in his first two loan stints were overlooked by an impressive list of appearances at Verona, which also came with two goals for the Greek midfielder.
Tachtsidis was introduced to the Roma faithful on Thursday as he joined other fellow summer recruits, such as Michael Brady and Leandro Castan, at the Stadio Olimpico where the group was greeted by loyal supporters of the Giallorossi during an open training session.
