Juventus have signed Croatia defender Dario Knezevic on a season-long loan deal from Livorno, the club confirmed on Monday.

Knezevic becomes the second reinforcement for the Bianconeri defence after Olof Mellberg´s switch to Turin from Aston Villa, which was agreed in January.

The 26-year-old Knezevic spent two seasons at Livorno following a move from his hometown club NK Rijeka in 2006, but heads for the exit door following the Tuscan side´s relegation to Serie B.
