Atalanta sign new goalkeeper

Atalanta have signed out of contract veteran goalkeeper Ciro Polito after Andrea Consigli suffered an injury.

The Bergamo outfit saw Consigli go off during their 2-1 win at Lecce on Wednesday evening and it's not yet clear how long the muscular problems will keep him out for.

His understudy is 35-year-old Giorgio Frezzolini, but Atalanta have moved to find another alternative.

Polito is 32 years old and was out of contract after Salernitana went bankrupt over the summer.

He is best known for playing in Serie A with Catania between 2007 and 2008. Polito will wear the Number 16 jersey for Atalanta.
