Farnerud has eight caps for the Sweden national team and he becomes Torino's first arrival of the summer, as announced on their official website.

"We are pleased to announce the permanent signing from Young Boys for Alexander Farnerud," a statement reads.

"The Swedish midfielder has signed a three-year deal."

Torino have also renewed their co-ownership of Brazilian striker Paulo Vitor Barreto with Udinese, meaning he will remain a part of Giampiero Ventura's squad for the forthcoming campaign.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
