Catania are set to sign Juventus full-back Marco Motta.

Vincenzo Montella’s side are understood to have agreed a loan deal until the end of the season to take the 25-year-old former Udinese and Roma defender away from Turin.

Former Italy Under-21 right-back Motta struggled in his first season with the Old Lady in 2010-11 and despite the club taking up the option to sign him in the summer, he has barely featured under Antonio Conte, with Stephan Lichtsteiner holding the first-choice position ahead of him.
