Juventus have finalised a deal for Italy international Antonio Candreva.
The 22-year-old midfielder has arrived on loan from Udinese with a view to Juventus buying half of the player's rights in the summer.
Candreva has spent the last 18-months on loan at Livorno and he was due to finish the season with the Tuscan club, but he has now moved to Juve.
Livorno have been compensated for the loan being ended early, with Candreva delighted to have sealed the move to Turin.
"It is a dream come true and I cannot wait to start this new adventure," Candreva told Sky Sport Italia.
"I can say that 2010 has certainly got off to a brilliant start for me. I feel positive and I hope to win over the coach and club to prove I am a player worthy of Juve."
