Oddo leaves for Lecce

Veteran former Italy full-back Massimo Oddo has joined Lecce from AC Milan on a season-long loan, the Italian champions said today.

The 35-year-old has played little for Milan since being part of the UEFA Champions League-winning team of 2007, having joined the club that January.

He spent the 2008/09 season on loan at Bayern Munich and since returning has been a bit-part player.

He played 34 times for Italy and was part of the squad that won the FIFA World Cup™ in 2006.
