Official: Lyanco extends at Torino

Torino have officially extended their contract with Brazilian defender Lyanco to June 2024.

The 22-year-old therefore adds two seasons to his previous deal with the Granata.

His profile shot up over the last few weeks thanks to strong performances with Brazil at the Under-20 World Cup.

Lyanco joined Toro from Sao Paulo in 2017 for €7m plus bonuses and 10 per cent of a future sale.

There were several offers this summer, but President Urbano Cairo remained firm and pledged to extend his contract.

He spent the last six months on loan at Bologna.
