Chievo have signed both Sporting Gijon defender Federico Barba and River Plate’s Mauro Burruchaga, son of Jorge.

The Flying Donkeys have been very active today leading up to Friday’s 19.00 UK time (18.00 GMT) transfer deadline in Serie A.

They announced the arrival of centre-back Barba from Sporting Gijon at a reported cost of €3m.

The former Roma, Empoli and VfB Stuttgart defender turns 25 next month and has signed a contract to June 2022.

Chievo also picked up 20-year-old midfielder Burruchaga from River Plate’s youth team.

He is the son of Argentina legend Jorge Burruchaga.
