Juventus confirm Elia swoop

Eljero Elia is officially a Juventus player after he completed his transfer from German club Hamburg.

The Turin outfit have agreed to pay the Bundesliga side a fee of €9m for the Dutch international midfielder.

That amount will be paid in three instalments – €4m immediately, €2.5m on 31 January 2012 and €2.5m on 31 January 2013.

The transfer fee may increase by a further €1m should certain bonus clauses be activated.

Elia himself has signed a four-year contract with the Turin giants.
