Napoli confirm Jorginho deal

18 January 2014 15:45

Napoli have confirmed the signing of Verona's Brazilian midfielder Jorginho on a four-and-a-half year contract.

The 22-year-old passed a medical in Naples on Saturday, and is the first arrival at the club during the January transfer window.

Jorginho has made 19 starts in all competitions this season, scoring seven goals, as newly promoted Verona have climbed into sixth in Serie A at the halfway stage.

Head coach Rafael Benitez was delighted to seal the midfielder's signature, but confirmed he would not be available to face Bologna on Sunday.

"It's not easy in January and if we find the right players, like Jorginho, then we'll take them," Benitez said.

"There aren't many around like him and we are seeking top level men. January is no time to run risks.

"We all know that Jorginho is here but we must still wait to finalise his contract.

"We need a little more time to do. So he will not be available for Bologna.

"But Jorginho is useful for both the present and the future, and knows Italian football."

Jorginho came through the youth setup at Verona, making his debut in 2010, with his last appearance in last Sunday's 3-0 defeat to Napoli in Serie A.
