Wigan striker Mauro Boselli has joined Genoa on loan for the rest of the season, the Barclays Premier League club have confirmed.

The 25-year-old Argentinian has been on the verge of switching to Serie A all week, and the DW Stadium side have now rubber-stamped his short-term departure.

Boselli has failed to make an impact in the Premier League since joining from Estudiantes in the summer, and has scored just one goal in 12 appearances in all competitions.

Latics manager Roberto Martinez does not accept that this spells the end for Boselli's career with the club, though, insisting he will return a better player.

He said: "I have always said we are lucky to have a player of Mauro's quality at our club, but he needs this opportunity to play because at the moment he cannot be the player he has been at Estudiantes over the past two seasons.

"At the moment he is not in a position where he can help the squad, and I am confident he will come back a better and stronger player after his stay in Italy.

"We wish him all the best over there and will be monitoring his progress weekly."
