Official: Torino sign Avelar

Torino have officially signed defender Danilo Avelar from Cagliari for cash and an option on Antonio Barreca.

The move had been in the air for several days and was finally completed this evening.

Toro released a statement confirming they had signed Avelar to a four-year contract.

In exchange, the Granata loaned defender Barreca to Cagliari.

This move includes an option to buy on a permanent basis, but Torino also have a counter-option.

Avelar is a 26-year-old Brazilian left-back who can also play in a more advanced role.

This season he scored four Serie A goals and provided five assists.
