Udinese snap up Kone

Udinese have signed Greece international midfielder Panagiotis Kone from relegated Bologna.

The 27-year-old was a key figure during his two-year stint at the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara but has opted to prolong his career in Serie A with Udinese after Bologna dropped into the second tier back in May.

A statement published through Udinese's official Twitter account said Kone had arrived at the Stadio Friuli on a permanent basis. No financial or contractual details were disclosed.
