Fulham and Italy Under-21 international Marcello Trotta has left the Championship club to join Italian Serie B side AS Avellino on a two-and-a-half year deal.

The 22-year-old made just three substitute appearances for the Whites after joining the west London club’s youth set-up from Napoli in 2009.

Trotta spent time away from Craven Cottage on loan at Wycombe, Watford, Brentford and Barnsley. In total, he scored 31 goals in 88 appearances during his time in England.
