Cagliari have taken Juventus midfielder Albin Ekdal in a co-ownership deal.

The 22-year-old had been co-owned by Bologna up until this summer, but returned to Turin with little chance of breaking into the starting XI.

It was today confirmed that Cagliari have signed up 50 per cent of the Swede's contract from Juve.

Ekdal joined Juventus in 2008 for €0.6m, but was loaned out to Siena for the 2009-10 campaign and then handed to Bologna in a co-ownership deal in August 2010 for €2.4m.
