Lions sign Diego Fabbrini from Watford

16 January 2015

Ollie boosts attacking options

Millwall manager Ian Holloway has continued his squad restructuring and strengthening by today signing Diego Fabbrini on a 93-day loan from Watford that runs until 19th April.

Fabbrini linked up with his new Lions team-mates at training on Friday morning and could be in line for his debut on Saturday when Ollie's men entertain Ipswich Town.

The 24-year-old, capped at full international level by Italy, will add flair and variety up front for Millwall. He can operate on either flank and has also been used in an advanced midfield role just behind a lone striker.

Born in Pisa, Diego started out as a youngster at Empoli where he made 56 appearances and such an impression that Udinese stepped in to secure his services.

He went on loan to Palermo before moving to Watford in July 2013 - one of seven Udinese players to move to Vicarage Road.

Fabbrini has made 23 appearances for the Hornets since then, including four this season, and enjoyed a spell on loan at Serie B side Siena last season. He becomes the fifth Millwall signing of the January transfer window, following hot on the heels of Dan Harding, Stefan Maierhofer, Paris Cowan-Hall and Shaun Cummings.
