The print edition of Gazzetta dello Sport (as relayed by Sport Witness) have revealed that Djed Spence has impressed everyone at Genoa with the start he has made at the club and suggested that the right-back could become an important player for the club in the years to come.
The 23-year-old has started all three Serie A games for the club since sealing his switch and it appears his new employers are quite happy with the player.

It sounds like the penny has finally dropped for Spence after Leeds’ decision to send him back, with the right-back now seemingly knuckling down and working hard.
While it is still early days for the youngster at Genoa, it appears as if the Serie A club do plan on activating the option to buy him permanently at the end of the season.
