Chievo have signed goalkeeper Francesco Bardi on loan from Inter Milan for next season.
The 22-year-old spent the 2013/14 campaign at Livorno, but could not prevent the Amaranto's relegation to Serie B.
With Samir Handanovic set to be Inter’s first-choice ‘keeper next season, Bardi has revealed he is looking forward to first-team football at the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi.
“I am very happy to be here, the feelings are very positive and I can’t wait to settle in to the squad so I can get to work,” Bardi told Chievo TV.
“Chievo are the club who wanted me with the most conviction and I am very honoured by that, so I hope to repay their faith in me.
“I’m glad I will play with (striker) Alberto Paloschi. It makes me happy. With him, I’ve built a good friendship.”
