Bournemouth are set to sign Italy Under-20 defender Filippo Costa who will play for the club's under-21 side.

Costa, 20, joins from Serie A club Chievo on a season long loan, subject to international clearance.

The left-back spent last season on loan at Pisa in the Italian third tier, scoring five goals.

"He's a good young player with lots of promise. I'm sure he will fulfil that potential here," recruiter Richard Hughes told the club website.external-link
