Inter youngster Franco Vezzoni has officially joined Serie C side Pro Patria on loan.

This is confirmed by the Nerazzurri, who announce on the club’s official site that the loan move for the player has been completed.

The 19-year-old made 29 appearances and scored four goals for the Primavera side in all competitions last season, and a loan move away represents the next step in his development and will constitute his first sustained experience in senior football.

The Argentine was called up last season for some Serie A matches and for a Champions League tie against Shakhtar Donetsk by Antonio Conte, but is not yet in the plans for the senior Nerazzurri squad.

However, the lower division will give the youngster a chance to hone his skills and gain experience.

Vezzoni is already with the rest of the Pro Patria swuad and coach Luca Prina, and is preparing for a new challenge as he looks to develop his game on loan.
