January 14, 2022

Venezia FC announce the loan of Iceland youth international midfielder Bjarki Bjarkason, 21, to Serie C club Catanzaro for the remainder of the 2021/22 season.

This season, Bjarkason has made one Serie A appearance, coming on as a substitute against Milan in Giornata 21 for his league debut, and one Coppa Italia appearance, getting the start as Venezia advanced past Ternana.

Last season, Bjarkason made 12 total appearances (four starts) between the Coppa Italia, the Serie B regular season, and the Serie B promotion playoffs, as Venezia earned promotion to Serie A.

Bjarkason arrived at Venezia from Icelandic first division club Íþróttabandalag Akraness in August 2020 and recently signed a contract extension through the 2023/24 season.

Good luck, Bjarki.
