Report: Howedes to Juventus done

Reports suggest Juventus have a deal for Schalke 04 defender Benedikt Howedes, a €3.5m loan with option to buy for €11.5m.

The German international has been moving closer to a move to Turin over the past few days, but negotiations with his club proved tough.

However, tonight Sky Italia is reporting that a deal has been agreed for a season-long loan worth €3.5m, with an option to buy set at €11.5m.

The deal is expected to be concluded tomorrow, with Howedes taking his medicals on Wednesday.

That should allow Kwadwo Asamoah to complete his €10m move to Galatasaray, as the Bianconeri were ensuring they had a replacement before sanctioning that move.

Howedes is known as a centre-back, but can also play at left-back.
