The Morocco international has completed a temporary switch to Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi for a new adventure in the Italian top-flight

Sofyan Amrabat has joined Serie A club Hellas Verona on a season-long loan deal from Cercle Brugge.

The Scaligers announced the arrival of the 23-year-old midfielder ahead of their league opener against Bologna on Sunday.

Amrabat caught the eye of the newly promoted Serie A club after his fine debut campaign in the Belgian First Division A where he helped Cercle Brugge to second-place last season.

His versatility to play as a defensive midfielder and a centre-back could be a boost for Ivan Juric's side as they aim to maintain their top-flight status.

On the international scene, Amrabat has made seven international appearances for Morocco and he was part of the Atlas Lions' set-up at the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia.
