Siena snap up Loria
Saturday 14 July, 2007

Siena have strengthened their squad with the arrival of Atalanta’s goalscoring defender Simone Loria.

The 30-year-old is a bruising marker in his own box, but also a prolific marksman in the opposition penalty area.

Loria scored an impressive five goals in 28 Serie A appearances for Atalanta last term, although his personal best was seven with Cagliari in 2003-04.

He had spent the last two terms at Atalanta, having previously played for Cagliari, Lecco, Nocerina, Battipagliese, Olbia and been a Juventus youth product who only made his top flight debut in 2004.

Siena Coach Andrea Mandorlini welcomes the new arrival on a four-year contract and he is already at pre-season training with his teammates.

However, the Tuscan side has released Ezio Brevi from his contract and he penned a deal with Serie C outfit Venezia.
