Swedish midfielder Oscar Hiljemark returns to Genoa following his six month spell at Panathinaikos.

With Isaac Cofie set to leave the club for Cagliari in the coming hours, Genoa have recalled the Swedish midfielder to help bolster their midfield.

The Italian club’s official twitter account posted a tweet of the midfielder back in training this afternoon. The 25 year old has been a mainstay in the starting eleven this season for the Greek side, having appeared in all 16 league matches thus far.

Hiljemark first arrived in Serie A at the beginning of the 2015 Serie A season, joining Palermo on a permanent basis.  He has made 14 appearances for Genoa in the past, scoring 2 goals for the club. It will be interesting to see if head coach Davide Ballardini will give the Swede consistent playing time throughout the second half of the season.
