It is now official that Udinese have loaned goalkeeper Alex Meret back to Spal, who he helped to promotion last season.
The 20-year-old shot-stopper had already spent last term with Spal in Serie B.
Last week he extended his contract to June 2022 and today signed a new one-year loan deal with Spal.
He conceded only 26 goals in 30 Serie B games last season.
Meret has already been called up for international duty, where is third choice behind Gigi Buffon and Gianluigi Donnarumma.
