Chelsea defender Davide Zappacosta has returned to Atalanta on a permanent deal.
Neither club has confirmed the transfer fee nor the contract length but it is reported the Serie A outfit will pay €10million for the 29-year-old.
Zappacosta started his career with Atalanta, impressing to secure a move to Torino before subsequently signing for Chelsea in 2017, winning the FA Cup and Europa League in his first two seasons.
The wing-back was a standout feature of Antonio Conte’s Chelsea, appearing 35 times in 2017-18, before loan spells with Roma and Genoa in the last two campaigns.
During that term under Conte, Zappacosta ranked fourth among Chelsea defenders for chances created (24) while producing 109 recoveries across 2,112 minutes of action.
