Bologna splash out for Juventus youngster Albin Ekdal

Bologna have signed Juventus youngster Albin Ekdal in a €5 million deal.

The 21-year-old, who impressed on loan at Siena last term, joins the Rossoblu after they bought him outright for €4.8m, but the two clubs then subsequently signed a co-ownership deal for the player.

“Juventus Football Club S.p.A. announces the disposal to Bologna F.C. S.p.A. of the registration rights of the player Albin Ekdal for a consideration of € 4.8 million to be paid by Bologna in 3 years,” a note on the Bianconeri website read.

“At the same time, Juventus and Bologna signed a player sharing agreement related to the same player for a consideration of € 2.4 million to be paid by Juventus in 3 years.

“The operation generates a positive economic effect for about € 2.2 million in the current financial year.”
