Joel Pohjanpalo's move to the Serie B has been confirmed. Both the Finn's Bundesliga club and new Italian side made the transfer official on Friday evening. Specifics were jot released by either part, but it is known that the 27-year-old will not be loaned out for a sixth consecutive time. Pojanpalo signs a two-year-deal with the Italian club.

"We are very grateful to Joel for his commitment over the past few years. He has always totally identified with Bayer 04," Leverkusen managing director Simon Rolfes noted in a statement released by Bayer.
