Iaquinta won’t accept loan exit

Vincenzo Iaquinta will only consider leaving Juventus this month if a club signs him on a permanent basis.

“He doesn’t want to move on loan,” agent Andrea D’Amico told Mediaset Premium. “If a definite solution can be found then that can be discussed with Juventus.”

The 2006 World Cup winner isn’t in the plans of boss Antonio Conte and he’s not played a single minute for the club so far this season.

The outfit’s decision to sign Marco Borriello on loan from Roma last week has only underlined that Iaquinta isn’t part of their project.

“Iaquinta is now fit as he has completely recovered from his injuries,” his representative continued.

“His exclusion, which we won’t discuss, is down to technical reasons – even if it seems strange to give up on Iaquinta.

“That decision is almost a luxury given that we are talking about a player who was a starter for Italy in the last World Cup.”

The 32-year-old joined the Old Lady in the summer of 2007 for around €11m from Udinese.
