Lazio defender Denis Vavro has returned to the Biancocelesti, after Genoa pulled out from the deal due to injury concerns, according to a report from Italian journalist and transfer market Gianluca Di Marzio on Twitter earlier today.

The 24-year-old Slovakian defender, who is contracted to the Roman club until 2024, was set to join the Rossoblu on a six-month loan deal with a €15 million buy option attached, but his medicals last week showed a pubalgia, which is a tear or strain to the soft tissue in his groin.

The former FC Copenhagen man will now return to Rome, and it is likely that Lazio will begin searching for a different home for the player.

Vavro has only made a single appearance for Simone Inzaghi’s side this season, playing 31 minutes in a 3-0 loss to Sampdoria back in October.

He has never looked particularly convincing for the Biancocelesti and is unlikely to stay in Rome for long.
