Lecce keep hold of Bertolacci

Lecce have netted promising youngster Andrea Bertolacci on loan from Roma for the third season running.

The 20-year-old first signed for Lecce in January 2010 while they were in Serie B and that agreement was renewed last summer following promotion.

Bertolacci, born in the Italian capital, is a product of the Giallorossi youth system and has played for all of Italy's national sides from Under-16 to Under-21 level.

The midfielder played in nine Serie A games last term for the Salentini, scoring three goals in the process.
