Alberto Paloschi: Leaves Swansea after short spell in Wales

Swansea striker Alberto Paloschi has secured a move back to Italy with Atalanta after failing to settle during his time in south Wales.

Paloschi joined Swansea from Chievo in an £8million deal during the January transfer window and he helped the club secure survival in the Premier League with two goals in 10 games.

However, the player is understood to have failed to settle into English football and Swansea are ready to let the player move on after just six months at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea have agreed a fee in the region of £5million with Atalanta for Paloschi and have given the player permission to hold talks and have a medical with the Bergamo side.

The former AC Milan striker’s transfer will be completed on 1 July.

“Everyone at Swansea City would like to thank Alberto for his services and wish him well for the future,” a statement on the club’s website said.

Paloschi’s exit will mean Swansea boss Francesco Guidolin will be looking to bring in a new striker to bolster his attacking options ahead of next season.
