Torino add trio on deadline day

Torino had a busy afternoon on Friday evening as they added three players to their squad for the upcoming season.

The Granata's first acquisition was eighteen year old Marko Bakić, who has moved to Toro from FK Mogren in his native Montenegro. Bakić has signed a two year contract at the club, and despite his tender age, he has already been capped by the Montenegro national team.

Toro also secured the signing of experienced left back Alessandro Agostini from Serie A rivals Cagliari, who will compete with Salvatore Masiello and Pablo Caceres for that position. Incredibly, despite making nearly 400 league appearances in his career, Agostini has never scored a senior goal - hopefully he can rectify that at Torino.

And finally, Torino have also signed Slovenian winger Valter Birsa on loan from Genoa until the end of the season. Birsa impressed many at the 2010 World Cup, and has scored three goals in 55 appearances for Slovenia.
