Juventus grant Elia permission to find new club

The Serie A champions have told the Dutchman that he will be allowed to leave the Bianconeri this summer after a disappointing 2011-12 campaign
Eljero Elia appears to be on his way out of Juventus in the summer transfer window as the Italian champions have given the winger permission to move on if a suitable offer comes in.

The Netherlands international joined the Bianconeri from Hamburg ahead of the 2011-12 campaign, but failed to secure a regular first-team place at Juventus Stadium, and consequently missed out on Netheraldns' Euro 2012 squad.

Juve had stressed that they were keen to hold on to the 25-year-old, but a summer move now seems inevitable.

"Juventus have already told me that I'll be allowed to leave," Elia stated to Eredivisie Live.

"I just want to enjoy playing football again. My agent is taking care of it, and he'll get in touch once an offer from a club is concrete."

Elia has made only four Serie A appearances for Juventus.
