Flo completes Siena move

Norwegian striker Tore Andre Flo has completed his move to Italian side Siena from cash-strapped Sunderland.

The 30-year-old has left the Black Cats, who have been forced to reduce their massive wage bill following relegation from the Premiership last season.

Siena, who are preparing for their first season in Italy's top flight having been promoted from Serie B, reached an agreement with Sunderland on Friday and the deal was formally completed after Flo passed a medical.

The Norwegian international is Siena's second major summer signing following the arrival of former Italy international Enrico Chiesa from Lazio.

He has signed a two-year deal with the Tuscany club.

"I'm really happy to play for Siena and I look forward to a new experience in Italian football," Flo said.

"The city is really beautiful and I hope to score more goals here than I did in England.

"I know Chiesa and am looking forward to playing alongside him."

Flo was a major disappointment at Sunderland following his arrival from Glasgow Rangers for 6.75m last August.

He scored only four goals in 29 matches for the Black Cats.

Before moving to Scotland, Flo spent four seasons with Chelsea, scoring 34 goals in 111 games for the Premiership club.
