Giovinco agent expects contract extension

The forward's representative is confident his client will be allowed to prolong his three-year deal with the Old Lady after impressing boss Antonio Conte on his return to the club
Andrea D'Amico, the agent of Sebastian Giovinco, says he expects the attacker to sign an improved contract with Juventus in the near future.

The 25-year-old's playing rights were bought in full by his former club in the summer following two successful seasons at Parma, and he promptly signed a three-year deal with the Bianconeri.

Despite experiencing initial teething problems, Giovinco has since scored eight goals for the Scudetto holders - a run of form that his representative reckons has warranted an imminent extension.

"[Coach Antonio] Conte really wanted him to come back," D'Amico told Sky Sport 24. "He fits into the squad well and is responding to the expectations asked of him. Everything is going according to plan.

“The club have always said that they would wait for the right time to extend his contract, which expires in 2015."
