Caprile - who joined the Whites in January 2020 from Chievo Verona - has joined Serie C outfit Pro Patria on a season-long loan deal in a bid to gain more first team experience after committing his future to Leeds.

He made 18 appearances for the club in the Premier League 2 last season as Mark Jackson's side were promoted to the top division of England's academy structure, though is yet to make his senior bow under Marcelo Bielsa.

Caprile will now aim to continue his development away from LS11 in Italy's third tier.
