Sky Sports.com reports that Italian outfit Lecce has pulled off a surprise signing by snatching Dusan Basta from the clutches of Udinese.
The 24-year old defender had been on the verge of sealing a move to Udinese from Red Star Belgrade after playing in some pre-season friendlies for the Zebrette.
But a deal was never completed and Lecce have stolen in to capture the Serbian international.
Lecce boss Mario Beretta was keen to boost his defensive options after suffering a 3-0 defeat at Torino in their opening Serie A game of the season.
Basta captained Serbia’s Under-21s and made 96 appearances in eight years with Red Star.
