Udinese Calcio is delighted to announce that Daniele Padelli has rejoined the club.
The 35-year-old goalkeeper has put pen to paper on a two-year contract until 30 June 2023.
Padelli spent two years in Friuli from 2011 to 2013 before going to play for Torino and Inter, earning himself an Italy call-up in the process.
Daniele Padelli was born in Lecco on 25 October 1985 and started out in the Lecco academy before moving to Como.
In 2004 he joined Sampdoria and spent a season with the U19s, followed by a year in Serie C with Pizzighettone, making 34 league and cup appearances during the 2005/06 campaign.
The next season he was loaned to Crotone but had only been there a few months when Liverpool came calling. Having made his Premier League debut, Daniele returned to Italy and spent further loan spells with Pisa and Avellino in Serie B, and Bari in Serie A.
Udinese signed him in 2011 and he made 12 appearances in the 2012/13 season: nine in Serie A, two in the Europa League and one in the Coppa Italia.
In the summer of 2013 he was snapped up by Torino, and stayed there for four seasons, collecting 116 appearances in all competitions.
Padelli joined Inter in 2017 and played 10 times for the Nerazzurri during his four-year stint in Milan.
Besides his call-up to the senior Italy squad, Daniele has one Italy U21 cap and seven U20 caps to his name.
Welcome back, Daniele!
