Official: Brescia sign West Ham United defender Fabio Daprela

Swiss defender signs five-year contract with Serie A club...
Italian Serie A side Brescia have announced the permanent signing of West Ham United's Swiss defender Fabio Daprela.

The 19-year-old, who is currently on international duty with the Switzerland Under-19 squad, has signed a five-year contract with the promoted Serie A side, just days after the Italian side completed a £1.8 million move for fellow Hammer, Alessandro Diamanti.

A statement from the Italian club read: "Brescia announce the acquisition of Fabio Daprela. Daprela has signed a five-year contract."

The left-back made seven appearances last season for West Ham after being signed by former Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola in the summer of 2009 from Grasshoppers.
