Serie A: Juventus Sign Christian Poulsen

Juventus have signed Danish midfielder Christian Poulsen for a fee which is said to be approximately €9.75 million from Spanish side Sevilla.

The Old Lady's official website declared earlier today, that Poulsen will be wearing black and white after signing a four-year deal with the Bianconeri.

After undergoing medical tests in the morning, Poulsen talked about his move to Turin, "I'm really glad to join such a prestigious club. Juventus are one of the top teams in the world and I hope I can do well here."

After spending two years at F.C. Copenhagen, four at Schalke 04, and the last two at Sevilla, Poulsen has gathered an impressive amount of international experience. He has made 56 appearances with the Danish national team, and was selected as Danish Player of the Year in 2005 and 2006.

He has also won numerous domestic trophies, including a Danish League title, a Spanish Cup, a Spanish Super Cup, a UEFA Cup and a European Super Cup.

"I think playing at Sevilla was a good experience for me before joining Juventus. I've already seen my new team mates play several times because, as I said, this is one of the top Clubs in the world. They have a great history and I'm proud to be here," Poulsen said.

Poulsen joins fellow Juventus signees Olof Mellberg, 18-year-old Swedish attacking midfielder Albin Ekdal, defender Dario Knezevic, and Brazilian striker Amauri.

Juve have also brought back Sebastian Giovinco and Claudio Marchisio, who were both on loan with Empoli, and bought the other half of defender Paolo De Ceglie's co-owned contract from Siena.

Juventus are reportedly close to sealing a deal to sign Inter Milan midfielder Dejan Stankovic. 

A press conference is to be held on Thursday at 2.00 pm to present Poulsen as a Juventus player.
