Verdi 'can't wait' for Torino

Torino new boys Simone Verdi says ‘I can’t wait to go out on the pitch with this shirt’ after completing his return from Napoli. 

Toro just about got a €3m loan deal for Verdi with €20m obligation to buy over the line on deadline day, and the forward is delighted to be back at the club.

“Hello everyone, I'm so happy to be back,” he said in a video on the Granata’s official Twitter account.

“Now I can’t wait to go out on the pitch with this shirt. Forza Toro always!”

The 27-year-old played just 19 times for Toro during his first spell between 2011 and 2015.

However, he went on to have two successful seasons with Bologna, earning a €25m move to Napoli move last summer.
