Rio de Janeiro: Napoli defender Bruno Uvini has started training with Brazilian outfit Santos following his arrival on a nine-month loan.

The 22-year-old is expected to make his debut for the club in its Copa do Brasil fixture against Mixto next week, reported Xinhua.

Uvini has struggled for first-team opportunities since being signed by Napoli from Sao Paulo in 2012.

Santos secured him just before the close of Brazil`s international transfer deadline April 1.

The center-back captained Brazil to victory at the 2011 U-20 World Cup and has been capped three times for Brazil`s senior team.
