Lazio have just confirmed that they've completed the signing of Gael Kakuta, who will spend the remainder of the season in Rome on loan. Chelsea have also confirmed the move.

Rumors this afternoon suggested that Kakuta would be leaving on a permanent basis, but it appears the Frenchman will be returning to Chelsea this summer.

After struggling to see minutes in a pair of Premier league loan spells, Kakuta had some success at Dijon before being caught up in a dispute between the manager and the board toward the end of that season. He spent the past season and a half on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, and has had some impressive spells along with some injury and attitude issues.

Best of luck to Kakuta in Serie A, and hopefully he does enough in training to earn some regular time on the pitch.
