Parma confirmed Stefano Morrone will be loaned out and commented on links with Walter Gargano, Andrea Dossena and Giandomenico Mesto.
Director Pietro Leonardi spoke to the media after their 4-0 Coppa Italia victory over Lecce last night.
“I read of many names associated with our club, including Gargano, Mesto and Dossena. Just look at our squad – how many players do we need?
“There are still a few details to be adjusted, but for the most part the team is complete.”
The Ducali also confirmed midfielder Morrone will not be at the Stadio Tardini this season.
“Stefano made a choice, which is to play with more consistency elsewhere and we respect that decision. He could finalise everything on Monday.
“As I always said, he is one of us and already has a long contract with Parma. We are confident he can return and will do everything to make him happy.”
