Manchester City striker Rolando Bianchi has completed his move back to Italy, joining Lazio on loan until the end of the season, with a view to a permanent deal.
The 24-year-old only moved to Eastlands from Reggina in an £8.8million deal last summer but has struggled to settle in England, scoring five goals in 24 appearances for City this season.
Bianchi told Lazio's official club website: "I had two other very interesting offers, but I chose Lazio for my future and to see how I could do at a big side.
"It was a tough decision that I thought over long and hard to make sure that I made the right move. Here I will have the chance to play more often, which makes me happy.
"I have come into a united group and I know that this is the right place for the present and the future."
