Chievo have confirmed the loan signing of Boca Juniors playmaker Leandro Paredes.

The 19-year-old was set to join fellow Serie A side Roma, but will now wait until the end of the season to complete his move to the Giallorossi.

"Chievo Verona announces that it has acquired on loan, with the right of renewal, Leandro Daniel Paredes," a club statement read.

"The footballer has remained in Argentina to carry out the practices related to obtaining a visa and will join the team after conclusion of the process."

The teenager has appeared over 30 times for Boca since making his debut at 16, recently playing understudy to Juan Roman Riquelme before a July training ground clash with goalkeeper Agustin Orion left him sidelined for months with a serious ankle injury.
