Breaking news from Italy. Rolando Bianchio is reported to have signed for Lazio in Rome this afternoon...
The deal is understood to be permanent, with City being paid in instalments over three years. The total fee is not yet confirmed.
Bianchi has had fantastic support from the City faithful but has not been able to secure a regular place in the starting line up.
His departure now leaves a glaring hole in an already weakened strike force and Svennis must now move swiftly to reinforce our frontline inside 8 days.
