Torino Full Back To Stay With Club
After a summer of speculation linking him away, Torino defender Danilo D’Ambrosio has said he will stay at the club.
Having impressed with his all-action style in the Granata’s first season back in Serie A, the twenty-four year old was said to be on the radars of clubs in England, including Aston Villa and Sunderland.
“Of course I’ll stay,” he told La Stampa.
It was thought that Torino might try to cash in on D’Ambrosio while he could still command a fee, with his contract expiring in June 2014. However, it seems that, although the club may be looking for a new right-back to join the squad, any arrivals will be battling with D’Ambrosio for a place in the team.
Naples native D’Ambrosio has been with the Granata since joining from Juve Stabia in 2010, and has made more than 100 appearances for the Piedmont side, helping them earn promotion to, and then stay, in Serie A.
The former Italy Under-21 international came through the youth system at Fiorentina, but having failed to make the grade with the Viola’s first team, moved to Potenza before Le Vespe took a chance on him.
