Juventus loan De Ceglie to Genoa

The attacking full-back has left the Bianconeri for the remainder of the campaign and will join the Grifone who are hoping to avoid relegation
Juventus have loaned out left wing-back Paolo De Ceglie to Genoa for six months.

The Bianconeri confirmed on their official website that the Turin club's youth product would spend the remainder of 2013-14 campaign in Liguria.

De Ceglie, who played for Italy at Under-21 and Olympic level but never for the senior team, has made only four appearances in Serie A this season despite staying injury-free.

The wing-back was first-choice for much of Antonio Conte's first season at Juve in 2011-12, but fell backwards in the pecking order in the following campaign and has failed to make a comeback into the first team.

The 27-year-old goes to the Stadio Luigi Ferraris with the Grifone sitting fourth from bottom in Serie A.

He is expected to train with Gian Piero Gasperini's squad on Saturday with a view to being part of the matchday squad when Genoa face Inter on Sunday.
