Crystal Palace have signed Inter Milan duo Nicola Ventola and Gonzalo Sorondo on loan until the end of the season.
Ventola has been on loan at Bologna and Atalanta
Former Italy Under-21 striker Ventola, 26, spent last season on loan at Siena, and is behind Adriano and Christian Vieri in the pecking order at Inter.
Defender Sorondo has struggled to break into the side at Inter following a move from Uruguayan club Defensor Sporting.
Boss Iain Dowie hoped to sign Argentine midfielder Kily Gonzalez for £6m, but his attempts appear to have failed.
