Bologna have confirmed the season-long loan signing of Brescia midfielder Panagiotis Kone.

Kone arrives initially on a temporary basis, but Pierpaolo Bisoli's men will have the option to buy him permanently next summer, although financial details of the deal remain undisclosed.

The Serie A outfit were desperately seeking a replacement for the recently-departed Francesco Della Rocca, after he completed his move to Palermo, but they have acted quickly to snap up the 24-year-old.

Kone, who can also play on the right wing, is a full Greece international, with four caps to his name and was a regular starter for Brescia, who were relegated to Serie B last season.

Meanwhile, Bologna have also announced that winger Andrea Pisanu has left to join Lega Pro side Prato on loan for the upcoming campaign.
