The son of Libyan president Muammar Gaddafi has joined Italian first division football club Perugia and will begin training with them in July.
30-year-old Saadi Gaddafi, the captain of Libya's national soccer team, will join the team permanently in the autumn if his time in Italy proves fruitful.
"It is an honor for me to be able to play with Perugia," Saadi Gaddafi was quoted by Italian news agency Ansa as saying.
"The Italian championship is full of pressure but I will go and see if the environment is right." (Albawaba.com)
