Wales international Ethan Ampadu is in advanced negotiations to join Venezia on loan from Chelsea, while the Lagunari signed Jack De Vries from Philadelphia Union.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the deal for Ampadu is close to completion, and would be a dry loan without option to buy.

The defender has been on the Chelsea books since 2017, but had loan spells with RB Leipzig and Sheffield United.

He turns 21 next month and was sent off for Wales against Italy during UEFA EURO 2020.
