Lazio have announced the signing of midfielder Valon Berisha from Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg on a five-year contract.

Berisha, capped 20 times by Norway and 10 times by Kosovo, joined Salzburg from Norwegian side Viking FK in 2012.

The 25-year-old went on to make 167 league appearances in six years at Salzburg, scoring 31 goals.

Lazio qualified for next season's Europa League after Inter Milan edged them out of fourth place, the last Champions League slot for Serie A, in the final game of the season.
