Matteo Lanzoni: Yeovil Town sign former Oldham defender

Yeovil Town have signed former Oldham Athletic defender Matteo Lanzoni on an 18-month contract.

The 25-year-old rejected a new contract with the Latics, who are managed by Glovers boss Gary Johnson's son Lee.

Gary Johnson said: "I've seen him a few times when I've watched Oldham this season and I was impressed.

"He can play anywhere across the back four and he's introduced himself to the lads in training by knocking a few about - he's competitive."

A former Italy Under-19 international, Lanzoni made 15 appearances, scoring twice for Oldham after moving to Boundary Park in the summer.

Lanzoni added: "I am delighted to sign for Yeovil Town.

"It is a great opportunity for me to play Championship football and I am looking forward to the challenge ahead."
