January 10, 2006

BRUSSELS, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Anderlecht midfielder Walter Bassegio has signed a six-month loan deal with Serie A strugglers Treviso, the Belgian club said on Monday.

'We have reached an agreement with Treviso who will take Walter Bassegio on loan for the next six months with an option to make the deal permanent at the end of the season,' Anderlecht said.

The 27-year-old Belgian international, whose appearances have been limited this season, has Italian roots. Both parents are Italian with his father a native of Treviso.

Treviso are bottom of Serie A with 11 points from 18 games.

Bassegio is their third signing this month following the acquisitions of Marco Borriello from Sampdoria and Siena's Gianni Guigou.
