Parma have completed the signing of midfielder Antonio Candreva from Udinese on an initial one-year loan deal.

The 23-year-old Italy international has switched allegiances in Serie A after more than three years with Udinese, and Parma will have the option to sign him permanently at the end of the season.

Candreva was shipped out on loan last term and, after six months at Livorno, went on to have a successful spell with Turin giants Juventus.

However, Juve did not opt to sign the midfielder permanently despite some impressive performances, and Parma have swooped to secure his services.

Candreva, who has been capped twice by the Azzurri, is set to be unveiled at Stadio Ennio Tardini on Wednesday morning.
