Newcastle are the early favourites to win The Championship next season and bounce straight back into the Premiership.

Genoa have confirmed they are set to bring in Portuguese winger Ricardo Quaresma.

Quaresma is currently contracted to Inter but he was loaned out to Chelsea in the winter transfer window after a disappointing first half to the season.

Luiz Felipe Scolari was subsequently fired as manager just days after his arrival at Stamford Bridge and Quaresma barely featured under his successor Guus Hiidink.

Jose Mourinho stated last week that Quaresma could still have a future at Inter, but Genoa have now confirmed he will be a Grifoni player next season.

“There is an agreement with Quaresma and we will get him in joint ownership (with Inter) for €10 million,” said Genoa president Enrico Preziosi.

The 25-year-old, who has previously spent time with Barcelona and Porto, will be joined at Genoa by former Chelsea striker Hernan Crespo.

The Argentine’s contract with Inter ends this summer and Genoa look set to win the race for his signature.

“We should conclude Crespo’s signing by tomorrow night,” said Preziosi.
