BANGOR City have provisionally secured their fifth signings of the summer so far.

The troubled Citizens’ announced that defender Davide Salvatore has agreed to join the club subject to approval from the Football Association of Wales.

The 22-year-old Italian joins from Jonica Siderno FC and can play as a right-back or as a holding midfield player.

Director of football Max Leghissa, said: “Davide is a tenacious player who has been over with us twice for a trial, once at the back end of last season where he impressed just before I arrived.

"Last week, he was here again and caught the eye. He has an excellent attitude to working hard but, like the other foreign signings so far, he will need pre-season to come and get as fit as possible and then to adapt to Welsh football.”

The news comes on the back of Francesco Serafino, David Thompson, Pavel Vieira and Massimo Sammartino all arriving in recent days as the club prepare for life operating in Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One following a 42-point deduction.

This ruling is pending an appeal from the club, which is expected to be heard in the coming weeks.

Chairman Stephen Vaughan Jnr is also fighting a transfer embargo implemented by the governing body that prevents City from signing any professional players on contract until December 31.
