Lazio have decided to loan one of their youth products to Serie B side Salernitana in hopes of getting him regular football.
One of Lazio’s youth products is packing his bags for Serie B in search of increased playing time. Australian International Christopher Oikonomidis is being sent out on loan to Salernitana for the second half of the season.
The coveted 20-year old midfielder signed a contract extension with the Biancocelesti last year, signaling an intent from the club to keep hold of their future talents. A loan to Salernitana will allow him room to grow and gain valuable experience under his belt.
Oikonomidis only made one appearance for Lazio’s first team which was in a Europa League Group Stage game in December vs Saint-Étienne.
