Juventus has announced it has completed the signing of Federico Peluso from Atalanta for a transfer fee of 4.8 million euros.
The 29-year-old Peluso spent the second half of the 2012-13 campaign on loan at the Bianconeri and has done enough to earn himself a permanent transfer and a contract until June 2017.
"Juventus Football Club S.p.A. announces the exercising of the definitive acquisition right for the player Federico Peluso from Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio S.p.A. for a fee of 4.8 million euros that will be paid over two financial years," a statement on the club's official website reads. "This acquisition will generate economic and financial effects starting from 1 July 2013. The employment contract signed by the player will last until 30 June 2017."
Peluso is a product of the Lazio youth academy, but he never made it into the first team at the Stadio Olimpico side. The left back, who has been capped at the senior level for Italy, wore the jerseys of Pro Vercelli, Ternana and AlbinoLeffe before joining Atalanta in 2009.
