Empoli youth chief Andrea Innocenti says management are excited by the potential of recent Georgian signing Levan Mchedlidze.

Innocenti told calciomercato.com: "It was a long negotiation, even from the point of view of bureaucracy.

"He is a player of great quality, who will begin with Empoli's primavera team."

Mchedlidze played in Georgia's shock 2-0 defeat of Scotland last night.
