Lazio secure Zarate in loan deal

Mauro Zarate
Zarate was a hit at Birmingham scoring four goals

Mauro Zarate has joined Italian Serie A side Lazio on a loan deal from Qatar club Al-Sadd.

Zarate spent much of last season on loan at Birmingham City and scored four goals but was unable to save the club from relegation.

The 21-year-old Argentine forward had been linked to a host of Premier League clubs including Portsmouth.

But Zarate has chosen to join Lazio, with the Rome side having an option to make the move permanent.
