MILAN - Three of Inter's youth players have signed for new clubs on co-ownership deals, with two players from Piacenza joining the Nerazzurri's academy under the same formula.
Goalkeeper Andrea Bavena, 20, joins newly promoted Serie B team Portogruaro, while defender Andrea Mei, 21, and midfielder Luca Tremolada, 19, move to Piacenza.
Tremolada, an Italy Under-19 player and a team-mate of Bavena in the Inter Primavera side in the last two seasons, won the Scudetto with Inter's Under-17 side in 2007/08. Mei, a former Inter Primavera player, made 8 appearances for Lumezzane in the Lega Pro last season after spending the first half of the campaign at Serie B outfit Crotone.
Joining Inter on co-ownership deals from Piacenza are 18-year-old striker Andrea Lussardi, part of the Biancorossi's first-team squad last term, and forward Matteo Colombi, 16, who played in the Allievi Nazionali championship last season. Both players have represented Italy at youth level.
