Southampton striker Dani Osvaldo has joined Juventus on loan until the end of the season.
The deal, which sees Juventus paying the full wages of the player during the loan period, also contains a clause which allows the Italian club to buy the striker at the end of the season in a deal worth around £15.6m to Southampton.
Mauricio Pochettino stated that Osvaldo would not play for the club again, due to a series of bust-ups, most notably during a training session with team-mate Jose Fonte which left the defender with a black eye and his involvement in a stoppage-time brawl against Newcastle last month.
Although Fonte recently came out to say he had "moved on" from the incident, it has done little to help the Argentinean forward who has struggled for goals since arriving from Roma as Southampton's record transfer in the summer.
He now joins a club who sit six-points on top of Serie A ahead of AS Roma in second and will compete in the UEFA Europa League.
Speaking to the Juventus official website, Osvaldo said: "I'm really happy. Everything happened in quick time. Sure, I've been pleased with Juve's interest.
"When everything had been concluded yesterday, I didn't believe it. These have been three incredible days, but I'm happy.
"In summer when I left, I was happy. Now I want to enjoy this moment because I've arrived at a top Italian side, in the year of the World Cup.
"I want to do my best to make the World Cup."
