Leeds United have signed Chievo goalkeeper Marco Silvestri on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old former Italy Under-21 international finished last season on loan with Chievo's Serie A rivals Cagliari, making three appearances.

He is the second goalkeeper to join the club this summer after Stuart Taylor signed a one-year deal last week.

Head coach Dave Hockaday told the club website:external-link "Everybody in Italy believes Marco is destined for very big things."
