De Silvestri and Castan Sign

Torino have continued a busy week in the transfer market by signings defenders Lorenzo De Silvestri and Leandro Castan.

Right back De Silvestri arrives on a permanent deal from Sampdoria and has previously worked with coach Sinisa Mihajlovic at both Samp and Fiorentina.

With Nikola Maksimovic still AWOL, Toro have increased their options at centre back by capturing Brazilian defender Leandro Castan on loan from Roma. Castan was once considered one of the best centre-backs in the league whilst at Roma, but missed almost the entire 2014-15 season after undergoing brain surgery.  Now fully recovered, Castan will look to regain that form whilst wearing a Granata shirt, and has cut short a loan spell with Sampdoria in order to join the club.

There have also been a few outgoings, with defender Pontus Jansson moving to Leeds United on loan, whilst Uruguayan Gaston Silva has moved to Granada, also on loan.

Forza Toro
