The Russian club have announced that an agreement has been reached for the loan of Salvatore Bocchetti.

The defender will be taken on loan for the remainder of the season, though it was not made clear if there is an option to permanently purchase the player. Many sources have suggested that there is an option but it was not officially announced by either club.

Bocchetti has found himself on the fringes at Spartak lately, only making three league appearances this year. He's looked surplus to requirements. This move also seems like an attempt for him to not only restart his domestic career but also to get back into the Italian team, for who he has made five times.

I haven't spoken to Inzaghi yet, but I am happy they wanted me and very happy to be back in Italy, as it's what I wanted. I hope to get back into the Nazionale too. Full-back or centre-back? I am ready to do anything for Milan.
