AC Milan have officially announced on their website the departure of goalkeeper Alessandro Plizzari on loan for the rest of the season to Lecce in Serie B. Plizzari will be the back up for former Milan goalkeeper Gabriel at the club.

The keeper has struggled since his return to the club from his previous loan spell as there is very little room to break in past the likes of Gianluigi Donnarumma and Mike Maignan with Ciprian Tatarusanu being the preferred back up.
