Carlisle United have signed trialist Alessio Bugno on a two-year deal.
The 22-year-old Italian has impressed during his three-week pre-season spell with the Blues.
The left-sided defender quit Italian football at the end of last season after four years at Monza.
Manager Greg Abbott said Lombardy-born Bugno - son of former Tour de France runner-up and two-time world road racing champion Gianni Bugno - was "a really nice lad who has worked hard from day one."
"He's settled in quickly to the way we do things on and off the pitch.
"We really think we've got a player we can work with over the course of the next two years. He gives us something a little bit extra and it's up to him to carry on the good work and stake a claim," he added.
The deal is subject to international clearance and clearance of registration with the football authorities.

Have your say
Baldy blue i think if you had been to any of the 1st three games
You would know far from poor attacking teams our two goalies
kept us in the games. Did not get to st mirren game as on holliday
back for morcambe game
I saw him against ST Mirren and he did a great job. St Mirren are no push overs but as Baldy Blue quite rightly says, lets see how he fairs in league 1.
If he can deliver the same performance as he did on Tuesday night, then Greg,s patients and methods have paid off.
