Official: Torino sign Rincon

Torino have officially confirmed the signing of Juventus midfielder Tomas Rincon, on loan with option to buy.

The midfielder joined the Bianconeri from Genoa in January, but struggled to break into Max Allegri’s first XI and will now continue his career with their city rivals.

“Torino Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of Tomas Eduardo Rincon Hernandez from Juventus Football Club on loan with option to buy,” a statement on the Granata’s website reads.

Juventus then confirmed with a statement of their own that the deal is a €3m loan, with a €6m option to buy next summer.

The option will become an obligation if Rincon plays a certain number of matches.

Toro President Urbano Cairo the Venezuelan international, praising his hard work and experience.

"Tomas Rincon is a versatile and complete midfielder who combines technical and physical qualities with personality.

"He's a hard worker on the pitch and a constant point of reference for his teammates. He knows the pitfalls of Serie A, and is an ambitious and determined lad.

"In addition to his talent, he brings experience and enthusiasm to Torino, so on behalf of the whole club I'm happy to extend the most cordial welcome to Tomas Rincon.

"Work well, and Forza Toro!"
