The Man City loanee is in the country for at least the coming season
Joe Hart's move away from Manchester City on loan was pretty much forced upon him by Pep Guardiola.
Finding himself at Torino, the England No 1's first match for the Turin club against Atalanta last Sunday did not go well.
Not only did they lose, but he had a hand in the Atalanta equaliser as he misjudged a cross.
And earlier in the day, Torino had got his name wrong on their team-sheet.
But less than two weeks into his time in Italy, he is making an effort with the language at press conferences.
Before switching to English, he kept it simple, starting off by saying: "Hello all. Thanks for coming to my presentation. I am studying Italian."
