Juventus has announced the signing of Stephan Lichtsteiner from Lazio via a statement on its official website.

The note, released on Friday afternoon, reads:

"Juventus Football Club S.p.A. communicates to have perfected the accord with the club S.S. Lazio S.p.A.  for the aquisition of Stephan Lichtsteiner for a €10 million fee, payable in three years. Juventus have underwritten a four-year contract with the player."

It is a move that has been long in the pipeline as negotiations with the Roman outfit over the 27-year-old have progressed steadily over the last two weeks.

After Juventus agreed personal terms with the player, Lazio appeared eager to hold out for a 12 million euro fee, but the deal has now been concluded as Lichtsteiner joins Andrea Pirlo, Reto Ziegler and Michele Pazienza as summer arrivals in Turin.
