Official: Juventus complete signing of Michele Pazienza from Napoli

The Old Lady officially unveiled the Italian after the midfield hard man passed a medical in Turin on Thursday
Juventus have announced the signing of Michele Pazienza who joins the Turin outfit on a three-year deal.

The 28-year-old passed a medical on Thursday and was officially unveiled to the press. A statement on the club's official website reads:

"Michele Pazienza underwent a medical today and signed a three-year deal that will tie him to Juventus until June 2014."

Earlier this month, the player's agent claimed the move to Juve was a done deal, and the midfielder himself admitted days later that he was leaving Napoli for personal reasons.

The former Napoli man played an integral role in helping his former club qualify for the Champions League, and will hope to do the same for the Old Lady next season.

Pazienza is Juve's third new signing of the summer after Andrea Pirlo and Reto Ziegler joined the club from AC Milan and Sampdoria respectively.
