OFFICIAL: Atalanta sign Chelsea defender Davide Zappacosta

Italian side Atalanta has completed the signing of Davide Zappacosta on a permanent deal.

Zappacosta leaves Chelsea after four years, the last two of which he had spent out on loan, and has signed with Serie A side Atalanta for the third time in his career.

"Davide Zappacosta has today joined Atalanta on a permanent deal," a statement from the club read. 

Atalanta are reportedly paying €10m to bring back the 29-year-old defender, who last played for them back in 2014-15, beating out Fiorentina among others for his signature.

He joins former Loan Army warrior Mario Pašalić as the second ex-Chelsea man in Bergamo.

The 29-year-old will be wearing the No. 77 shirt at Atalanta after signing a four-year deal.
