HITC Sport is reporting that the prolific talisman has agreed to sign for Argentine side Belgrano and the news has been confirmed by the club on their official website.

Becchio is currently enjoying a family holiday in Spain but has confirmed his delight at making his next career move.

The striker said: “I am excited by the interest in me, it was always my desire to play for the club but for various reasons I could not make before.

“Belgrano know what it means and I am really eager to play and show my qualities as a player.”

The 31-year-old endured a difficult time with Norwich City and spent some of last season out on loan at Rotherham United, where he was unfortunate enough to break his ankle in his sixth appearance for the Millers.

Former Leeds United head coach Neil Redfearn wanted to sign the striker on loan in January and take him back to the club where he had been a fans’ favourite after¬†scoring over 80 goals for the Whites.
