Venezia have completed the signings of American midfielder Gianluca Busio from Sporting Kansas City and Italian defender Mattia Caldara on loan from AC Milan, the Serie A club said on Monday.

Busio makes full international debut

Busio, 19, earned his first senior cap for the USMNT in their opening game of last month’s CONCACAF Gold Cup against Haiti and featured in every match as they went on to lift the trophy for the seventh time.

The 27-year-old Caldara joined the promoted Venetians on loan from Milan after struggling for game time while on loan at Atalanta last season. Venezia’s first top-flight season in 20 years kicks off with a trip to Napoli on 22 August.
