AS Roma coach Luis Enrique has blocked a loan move to Lecce for youngster Andrea Bertolacci.

Bertolacci spent last season on-loan at Lecce and they were keen to bring him back for this term.

However, Enrique has been impressed by the youngster in preseason training and wants a good look before making a decision over whether to release him.

Roma management are delighted with Enrique's stand as they're keen for him to utilise the club's youth system more.
