LEEDS United centre-back Giuseppe Bellusci has joined Italian club Empoli on a season-long loan.

The Italian defender sealed his move to the Serie A club on Friday afternoon with the transfer made with a view to a permanent move next summer.

Bellusci, 26, has returned to Italy for ‘family reasons’ after making 61 appearances for the Whites since joining from Catania in 2014.
