Cagliari beat Genoa to Castan?

Cagliari have reportedly beaten Genoa to the signature of Roma defender Leandro Castan.

Castan was thought to be on his way to Genoa, but fresh reports suggest the Brazilian will undergo a medical with Cagliari on Thursday, prior to joining on loan until the end of the season.

The 31-year-old has not made any appearances for Roma’s first team this season, with a cavernoma derailing his career in 2014.
