Serie A newcomers Atalanta have bolstered their midfield for the coming campaign with a double loan capture.
Luca Cigarini has returned to the club on a season's loan from Napoli, while fellow midfielder Matteo Brighi has also joined from Roma.
Cigarini spent a season at Atalanta from 2008-9 before departing for Napoli, while Brighi has been at Roma since 2004.
The pair arrive as the newly-promoted club face the arduous task of staying up with a six-point deduction received after they were found guilty of being involved in match-fixing.
