Genoa clinch Castan deal

Genoa have reportedly agreed terms to sign defender Leandro Castan on loan from Roma.

The Brazilian joined the Giallorossi from Corinthians in 2012, but his career was railroaded by a cavernoma – a cluster of irregular blood vessels in the brain that required delicate surgery in September 2014.

He had loan spells at Sampdoria and Torino over the last 18 months, but has not received a single minute of football this season.

According to Sportitalia, the centre-back will join Genoa during this transfer window on loan.
