Torino sign Giuseppe Vives

Torino have made their fourth signing of the week by sealing a move for Lecce midfielder Giuseppe Vives, who becomes the first player to be signed outright in this transfer window.

All of Torino's previous eight signings of the summer (Ebagua, Verdi, Coppola, Oduamadi, Iori, Darmian, Glik, Basha) had been signed on either a loan or co-ownership basis, so the purchase of Vives may herald a change in transfer strategy by Sporting Director Gianluca Petrachi.

Vives has been a regular in the Lecce midfield for the past five seasons and was named the best midfielder in Serie B when Lecce gained promotion in the 2009/10 season.
