Cork City have completed the signing of Italian winger Christian Nanetti ahead of the 2017 season kick-off.
The 25-year-old midfielder joins the League of Ireland club from English National League South side Welling United.
Cork manager John Caulfield highlighted Nanetti’s technical ability and is hopeful that the former Queens Park Rangers youth can make a positive impact at Turner’s Cross.
“He has a great attitude, he is very tricky and very skilful; he is certainly a guy who can open up a game for us and create chances,” Caulfield said.

“He was a promising player when he was younger but injuries set him back a bit. He’s fit now and he is really keen to progress in his career.
“He is coming in from non-league in England and he has a bit of work to do in terms of his sharpness, but his attitude has been great and we hope to see him have an impact in the near future.”
Cork City get their 2017 Premier Division campaign under way against Finn Harps on Friday, February 24. Kick off 19:45.
