Out of favour central defender Rolando has officially signed a loan deal with Serie A side Napoli for the rest of this season.

The Italian club made the announcement through a news release on their official website. The 27-year-old passed his medical exams on Wednesday and officially joins a team that has a realistic chance of winning the Scudetto this year.

Napoli remain only three points behind Juventus for first place in Serie A. Rolando will likely be relied on to provide support from the bench. Once Porto’s first choice central defender, he has seen his playing time dramatically reduced under manager Vitor Pereira.

“I am very happy. I know that Napoli is a great club with many championships. I have heard about the passion of their fans, I want to feel that emotion at San Paulo stadium,” Rolando said in an official statement on the club’s website.
