Transfer market: Francesco Bardi joins Livorno

19-year-old keeper will play in Serie B next term; defender Andrea Mei at VVV-Venlo (Netherlands); both on loan

MILAN – It was in Livorno, his home town, where he achieved his first major success as a Nerazzurri keeper, playing a starring role in the Viareggio Cup 2011 victory by Fulvio Pea's Primavera team. And it is in Livorno, where he developed as a player before transferring to Milan last January, that Francesco Bardi will spend the next year. Inter have agreed to let the 19-year-old keeper - who has represented Italy at U-17, U-19 and U-21 level - join Livorno on loan for the 2011/12 Serie B season, where he will help Walter Novellino's ambitious side in their bid for promotion.

Andrea Mei, 22, will also have an important experience next season - in the Netherlands. The defender joined the Nerazzurri Primavera team in 2006/07, spent the 2008 pre-season with the first team, with José Mourinho fielding him in friendlies against Al-Hilal and Bari, and was included in the Champions League squad for 2008/09. Now, after accumulating experience at Crotone in Serie B, Lumezzane in Lega Pro Prima Divisione and Piacenza (14 appearances in Serie B last term), Mei has joined Venlose Voetbal Vereniging Venlo on loan, with the Dutch club having an option to purchase. Based in Limburg and founded in 1903, VVV-Venlo have spent the last two seasons in the Eredivisie since winning promotion in 2009.
