Chelsea right-back Davide Zappacosta has completed a loan move to Serie A side Genoa, Chelsea Football Club announced.

The full-back spent last season on loan at AS Roma but injury meant he played only a hand full of games for the Rome-based side.

Zappacosta sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury in his knee just a few months after joining AS Roma.

But he recovered in time to make six appearances in Serie A before the end of the season, taking his total appearances for Roma to eight.

The 28-year-old who joined Chelsea in 2017 has started 52 games for the blues, 18 of them as a substitute.
