Juventus confirm Elia sale

Juventus have announced that they have sold Eljero Elia to Werder Bremen for an initial fee of €5.5m.

The Dutchman was made available for transfer after a disastrous first season in Italian football with the Old Lady.

The winger was signed from Hamburg for around €9m last summer, but he appeared in just four League games for a total of 107 minutes. He also played in one Italian Cup tie.

Juve have today revealed that the midfielder has moved for a fee of €5.5m, but that figure could rise by a further €2m depending on what Werder Bremen achieve over the next few seasons.
