Barcelona's Martin Caceres 'Happy' With Juventus Loan

The young defender has revealed his contentment at securing a switch to the Old Lady...

Martin Caceres is poised to sign for Juventus on a season-long loan deal, after falling out of favour at the Camp Nou.

The 22-year-old Uruguayan is already in Turin, where he passed a medical with Juventus this morning, and the only pending issue now is the announcement from both clubs.

Upon arriving in the Italian city, Caceres told AS: "I am really happy to be here at Juventus, I cannot wait to start."

Caceres, who has 15 international caps to his name, will train with Juventus for the first time when they return from Spain, where they are currently competing in the Peace Cup.

He will hope to follow in the footsteps of his fellow countryman Paolo Montero who spent nine very successful seasons in Turin.
