Official: Udinese signs Juventus' Michele Pazienza on loan; Vincenzo Iaquinta joins Cesena

The Turin giants have farmed the dynamic midfielder and towering attacker out on loan until the end of the season as Antonio Conte also welcomes a new arrival to the club.
Udinese has completed the transfer of midfielder Michele Pazienza from Juventus on a six-month loan deal, with the move being confirmed on the official Lega Serie A website.

The 29-year-old midfielder joined Juve from Napoli on a Bosman move at the start of the 2011-12 campaign, but Pazienza had mainly been warming the bench so far.

After the signing of Simone Padoin from Atalanta earlier on Tuesday, head coach Antonio Conte told Pazienza that he was no longer needed in Turin, and the midfielder has not wasted any time to find a new club.

Furthermore, the Turin giants have farmed experienced attacker Vincenco Iaquinta out on loan to Cesena until the end of the season.

The former Udinese striker had been struggling to secure regular first team action at Juventus Stadium this term due to the stiff competition for places and a string of injuries.

Therefore, Iaquinta has opted to move on in order to get his career back on track elsewhere.
