Torino's Deadline Day Deals

Torino have had a busy day on the last day of the transfer window, with Brazilian striker Jonathas being the most significant acquisition.

Jonathas has arrived on loan from fellow Serie A side Pescara, and although he has only scored one goal this season - he did score 16 goals for Brescia in Serie B last season.

Perhaps the most surprising move of the day, is the signing of young Belgian striker Nathan Kabasele from Anderlecht. The Belgian Under 19 international has also arrived on loan, with an option to sign the player permanently in the summer, and he will link up with compatriot Dolly Menga who signed for the club last week.

Torino have also re-signed goalkeeper Ferdinando Coppola from AC Milan, and this move has enabled young keeper Lys Gomis to move on loan to Ascoli in order to gain first team experience. Romanian midfielder Sergiu Suciu has also been loaned out to Serie B side Juve Stabia, and he will link up with Toro winger Simone Verdi who also went there earlier this month.
