Bologna have confirmed that they have completed the signing of Michele Pazienza from Italian champions Juventus.
The midfielder, who is understood to have penned a three-year contract, will be officially presented to the media at 4pm local time on Thursday.
Having spent the last six months of 2011-12 on loan at Udinese, he was also targeted by Torino and Fiorentina since his return to Turin.
Born in August 1982, Pazienza joined the Old Lady last summer on a free transfer after his contract at Napoli expired.
