Villarreal duo Roberto Soriano and Nicola Sansone have made loan moves to Serie A club Bologna on deals until the end of the season.
The pair are both out of favour at Villarreal, with Soriano spending the first half of the campaign on loan at another Italian club, Torino, while Sansone has been restricted to just 34 minutes of La Liga action.

The German-born duo will hope to get some much-needed first-team action in the second half of the season as they look to help Bologna, who sit third from bottom in Italy, out of the relegation zone.
Midfielder Soriano has scored 11 goals in 67 appearances for the Spanish side, while winger Sansone has managed 16 in 68.
