Atalanta have re-signed midfielder Diego De Ascentis. The 33-year-old has signed a one-year contract with the club according to the Bergamo based outfit's official website.

The player was a free agent after his contract expired last summer, but had been training with the team over the last week. Between 2007 and 2009, De Ascentis had already made 54 appearances for the Bergamaschi.

He is a product of the Como youth system, and after three solid seasons at Bari, he was signed by Milan in 1999. However, he lasted just one season with the Rossoneri, spending much of the season on the bench.

He then left for Torino, a club he played with for five years, before leaving for Livorno. After just one year he returned to the Granata for one season, and then signed for Atalanta in 2007.
