Chievo have confirmed that young defender Filippo Costa has joined Bournemouth on a season-long loan.

The Serie A side said on their website that the 20-year-old former Italy Under-19 international had joined the Cherries until June 30, 2016.

Costa is yet to make his senior debut for Chievo, last season making 29 appearances for Italian third-tier side Pisa.

He is the Cherries' sixth signing of the summer since their first promotion to the Premier League, following Artur Boruc, Sylvain Distin, Adam Federici, Joshua King and Tyrone Mings.
