Fabio Zamblera – sent on loan to Sampdoria
The news that’s on the web site is that UEFA Cup hopefuls UC Sampdoria have bolstered their squad with the double signing of teenager Fabio Zamblera and Italy Under-18 captain Roberto Soriano
The 18-year-old Zamblera, a 6’3″ striker, arrives on loan from Newcastle United FC with the option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.
We haven’t seen much of Zamblera in the Reserves so perhaps he’s not developing as well as Newcastle would have liked.
Of course we have Andy Carroll at 20, and up-and-coming Nile Ranger at 17, who are both top young strikers, with Carroll already performing well in the first team.
Fabio was signed last January, on a four and a hald year deal, for an undisclosed fee from Atalanta.
He has represented Italy at Under-18 levels, and presumably could join Sampdoria in the summer if he plays well in the interim.
We would expect Newcastle United to make this official on their web site.
