Chievo have bolstered their ranks with the loan signing of Gelson Fernandes from St Etienne.
The Switzerland international only made the move to St Etienne 12 months ago after a two-year spell with Manchester City when he showed promise but failed to establish himself as a regular starter.
He is now embarking on a fresh challenge in Italy after joining Chievo on a season-long deal with the option for a permanent transfer next summer.
Chievo made a winning start to the new Serie A campaign with a 2-1 victory over Catania at the weekend and will be delighted to add Fernandes to their squad.
The 23-year-old midfielder scored the only goal of the game in Switzerland's shock victory over eventual champions Spain at the World Cup.
