Juventus have announced their second signing of the week after confirming a deal for defender Reto Ziegler from relegated Sampdoria.

Andrea Pirlo moved from AC Milan on Tuesday and now Switzerland international left-back Ziegler has been recruited on a four-year deal as a squad overhaul continues.

Serie A club Juventus are rebuilding after an underachieving season, which resulted in a second successive seventh-placed finish and last week cost manager Luigi Del Neri his job.

Former Juventus midfielder Antonio Conte is poised to replace Del Neri and he will hope that former Tottenham and Wigan player Ziegler will solve Juventus' problem position at left-back.

Paolo De Ceglie was injured for much of the season and Fabio Grosso was frozen out after underwhelming form.
