In a no doubt desperate attempt to massacred the news that Bolton Wanderers have sold their best defender, Tim Ream, to Fulham for a measly fee, the Whites have taken to announcing not one, but two new signings.
The 29-year old, who's signed a two year deal at the Macron Stadium, has spent the entirety of his career to date in Serie A with Cagliari, but upon their relegation to Serie B he was released by the club - and that's when Bolton came in to bring him to England.
The full-back, who is renowned for his pace, bolsters Neil Lennon's options in defence and could be the key for the dreaded 3-5-2 formation finally working.
He had racked up well over 200 appearances in his nine years at the Sardinian club, scoring a single goal.
Like Silva, he goes straight into the squad and could make his debut against Dougie Freedman's Nottingham Forest this Saturday. We await word on his squad number.
