Juventus full-back Marco Motta will spend the new campaign at Bologna after an agreement was reached between the two clubs.
Motta, an Italian international right-back, will join the Stadio Dall’Ara outfit on a loan deal given that he is surplus to requirements in Turin. Bologna will also have the option to buy outright next summer.
The 26-year-old will undergo his medical at some stage on Thursday and his move will then be made official.
Motta joined Juve in the summer of 2010 from Udinese. He didn’t feature at all under Antonio Conte last season and joined Catania on loan in January.
