D'Agostino and Angella join Siena

Siena have officially signed Gaetano D'Agostino and Gabriele Angella from Udinese. “I accepted straight away.”

D'Agostino had been left in the lurch after the Friulani won a blind auction against Fiorentina to win his full ownership.

He underwent a medical on Friday and was presented to the media this weekend.

“I accepted Siena's offer straight away, because I had faith in the words of the director and President,” said the Italy international.

“It's not easy to complete negotiations for a transfer in one day, but that shows how much Siena valued my contribution.

“I feel good and want to get straight on to the field. I don't need to take revenge or anything, but just prove I am a useful player for this squad.

“My objective, and that of Siena, is to secure safety as quickly as possible. This is a solid club, so they have everything they need to be a success.”

Udinese also loaned defender Angella to Siena, as he is still co-owned by Serie B club Empoli.

“I am very happy to be at such an important side and proud to be alongside those who earned promotion last season,” said Angella.

“It's a great chance for me and I hope to play more consistently than I did at Udinese.”
