Miccoli signs new Palermo deal

The new deal will keep Miccoli at Palermo until the summer of 2013, according to agent Francesco Caliandro.

“He is a footballer with great quality, but he wants to get back on the pitch only when he is at his best,” the agent told Stadionews.it.

Miccoli has been struggling with a knee injury in recent weeks.

“Benfica came forward in the past, and in the summer Birmingham also came forward to take him to England,” added the agent.

“But the player has signed with Palermo until 2013.”
