Toro take 'keeper Coppola

Ferdinando Coppola is the new Torino goalkeeper after the club missed out on top target Jean-Francois Gillet.

The Serie B club wanted Gillet after Bari were relegated, but the Belgian has joined Bologna instead.

Toro quickly looked elsewhere and have now netted Coppola on loan after agreeing a deal with Italian giants Milan.

Coppola, born on 10 June 1978, spent last season on loan at Siena where he conceded just 33 goals in 40 games as the Tuscans won promotion.

The shot-stopper has had a varied career, playing for the likes of Napoli, Bologna, Ascoli, Reggina, Piacenza and Atalanta.
