Deadline Day Deals

Torino have been busy on deadline day as Salvatore Masiello finally completed his move, but there were also departures as three players left the club.

Salvatore Masiello hit the headlines in August 2011 after a plate-throwing incident at former club Bari that resulted in him being frozen out of the first team. Masiello, who played under Giampiero Ventura at his former club is a left-back and is expected to provide competition for Alessandro Parisi. If Masiello can avoid throwing crockery at his new team- mates, then he could prove to be a smashing signing. (Sorry I couldn't resist)

For much of the day, there had been speculation about Rolando Bianchi joining Catania, however it is another Torino striker, Giulio Ebagua who has moved to the Sicilian club on loan. Ebagua has struggled to hold down a starting place for Toro since joining from Varese in the summer, and only scored three goals in twenty appearances.

Biagio Pagano has also left the club to join Serie B side Nocerina on loan, whilst young midfielder Umberto Miello has been loaned to Casale.
