The Senegalese midfielder has agreed to join the Yellow and Blues for the remainder of the season
Chievo have announced the signing of Assane Diousse on loan from French Ligue 1 Saint-Etienne until the end of the 2018-19 campaign.
Two years after leaving Empoli to join the French top-flight side, Diousse is back in familiar surroundings in Italy, with Chievo having the option to make the deal permanent in the summer.
The 21-year-old rarely featured for the Greens this season, managing 213 minutes of action in seven Ligue 1 appearances.
And his signing comes as a boost for Chievo who are rooted to the bottom of the Serie A table with just eight points from 21 matches.
"A.C. Chievo Verona announce that midfielder Assane Diousse is coming on loan to the club from A.S. Saint-Etienne until 30th June, with further options [to purchase] later," read a club statement.
Diousse will be looking to make his debut when Chievo visit his former club Empoli for Saturday's league fixture.
