Ziegler signs for Juventus

Reto Ziegler has completed his move from Sampdoria to Juventus, the Old Lady of Italian football have confirmed.

The Swiss full-back had a medical in Turin on Wednesday and has subsequently put pen to paper.

The left-back, formerly of Tottenham, has committed himself to the Bianconeri until June 30, 2015.

Ziegler, who was on the verge of joining Lazio in January, arrives on a free after his Doria deal expired.

"I'm very happy," said the new Turin stopper. "Yesterday I had my medical tests and then I signed the contract.

"Everything went well and I can't wait to wear the shirt of this club.

"Juventus are a great side, it is a great honour for me and an important step forwards in my career.

"I can now play with champions and will be able to show my qualities as a footballer.

"I am a full-back who likes to attack, I'm a technical player and I can give a bit of freshness to Juventus."

Juventus also signed Andrea Pirlo from Milan on a Bosman earlier this week.
