On-loan Hellas Verona left back Antonio Luna has joined Spezia until the end of the season.

The Spaniard had moved to the Scaligeri on a season-long loan from Aston Villa in the summer, but has been given permission by the English Premier League side to go to the Serie B side on loan after failing to feature in a single game for Verona.

“Spezia announces that it has acquired by loan from Hellas Verona, with the authorization of Aston Villa, who own the player, the Spanish defender, class of ‘91, Antonio Luna Rodriguez,” an official statement on the club’s website reads.

The 23-year-old came through the Sevilla youth system, making 32 appearances for the B side and graduated to the first team in May 2010.

He spent the second half of the 2012-13 season on loan at Real Mallorca before moving to Aston Villa for an undisclosed seven-figure fee in the summer of 2013.

Luna scored on his Premier League debut in a 3-1 win at Arsenal, but after making 18 first team appearances did not feature again after a 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Anfield on January 18 2014.
