Leo Duarte

, the Milan player has joined

Istanbul Basaksehir

on an 18-month loan deal. The Turkish side have the option to sing Duarte permanently when his contract with

AC Milan

expires in 2022. The 24 years old center-back joined the Italian club in August 2019 and Milan had to pay €11million to the Flamengo.

A Milan statement read:

"The club would like to thank Leo for his professionalism and wishes him the best for his personal and professional future."

He only made 6 appearances for Milan last season which all of them were in Serie A. He spent 4 years in Flamengo and played 92 times for the Brazilian side but  he made only 9 appearances fo the Italian side since his arrival in 2019.

Basaksehir is currently 12th in the Super Lig table with 22 points in 17 games. They have conceded 28 goals so far and surely needed to sign a trustworthy defender.
