DEFENDER MAKES SERIE A LOAN MOVE
Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ezequiel Schelotto has joined Serie A side Chievo Verona on loan until the end of the season.
The full-back heads to Italy having made 23 appearances since joining the Seagulls from Sporting Lisbon in the summer of 2017.
Manager Chris Hughton said, “Ezequiel has found opportunities limited so far this season, but he’s continued to train well every day.
“We have strong competition in the full-back areas and this move gives him the chance to play regularly in Italy’s top division, which is a league he knows well.
“We wish him all the very best for the remainder of this campaign.”
Schelotto played for Chievo on loan from Inter Milan during the 2014/15 season, turning out 29 times in Italy’s top flight.
He has also featured for a number of other Italian clubs in Serie A, with spells at Cesena, Atalanta, Catania, Sassuolo and Parma.Published 29 Jan 2019, 15:34 IST
