Hellas Verona have officially signed Moldova international Artur Ionita as a free agent from FC Aarau.
The 19-year-old Moldavian midfielder already passed his medical and put pen to paper on a three-year contract, though he won’t actually play for Hellas until July.
Verona announced the signing on their official website, confirming Ionita will arrive on a free transfer when his contract with Swiss club Aarau expires in June.
He has been at the club since July 2009 and this season scored three goals in 18 Super League appearances.
Ionita has played for Moldova at Under-21 level and also has two goals in 10 senior caps.
