Torino have officially signed Ivorian defender Koffi Djidji from French club Nantes on loan with an option to buy.

The deal was confirmed in a statement on Torino’s official website, with President Urbano Cairo praising the 24-year-old’s versatility.

“Kffi Djidji is a centre-back who complements our defence,” noted Cairo.

“During his career he has shown he can play anywhere in a back three, so he also offers versatility.
