SPAL have officially signed former Italy goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano on loan from Sporting CP until the end of the season.
The deal was confirmed in a statement on SPAL’s official website, although it contained no mention of an option to buy.
The 33-year-old only joined Sporting last summer after four years as Sampdoria’s No 1, along with Stefano Sturaro and Sinisa Mihajlovic.
The Portuguese side armoured him with a €45m release clause, but a change of board and Coach resulted in him failing to make any appearances in the first half of 2018-19.
