Juventus have confirmed on their official website that they have completed the signing of Atalanta midfielder Simone Padoin for €5 million. The 27-year-old has signed a five-year deal with the Bianconeri.

The Bianconeri were keen to add some more depth to their midfield before the closing of the January window, and were previously linked with players such as Cagliari's Radja Nainggolan and Porto's Fredy Guarin.

However, they eventually turned their attention to Padoin instead and have now completed the signing of the midfielder.

Padoin started his professional career with Vicenza before returning to his boyhood club Atalanta in the summer of 2007. He had since developed into a key player at the Bergamo outfit, thus earning himself a move to Juventus.
