Leeds United goalkeeper Elia Caprile has signed a new contract and left the club on a season-long loan deal.
Caprile, 19, has sealed a loan move to Serie C side Aurora Pro Patria 1919 until the end of the 2021/22 season.
Before that though, he penned a new three-year at Elland Road, committing his future to the Whites until the summer of 2024.
The former Chievo starlet has yet to appear for Marcelo Bielsa’s first team, but has made the squad five times.
He arrived in January 2020 and penned a three-and-a-half year contract, despite never playing for Chievo’s senior side.
Last season he made 18 appearances for Mark Jackson’s Under-23 side, which won the Premier League 2 Division 2 title.
He will now continue his development in his native Italy and look to gain first-team experience in Lombardy.
“We wish Elia good luck during his time at the Stadio Carlo Speroni,” read a statement on Leeds’ website.
