DONE DEAL: Ex-Juventus keeper Gigi Buffon joins Parma

Former Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon has signed with Parma.

The 43 year-old returns to his former club for their season in Serie B after relegation last term.

Buffon played for six years with Parma between 1995 and 2001 before moving to Juve. He returns to Parma with the expectation of being the club's No1 for the new season.

“We are thrilled to welcome Gigi Buffon home," said Kyle Krause, the president of Parma. "We are going to bring this legendary club back to its rightful place. Buffon's return is another validation of that ambition. It's a really special moment for all of us."

Parma managing director Javier Ribalta also said: “From the first moment I shared the idea of a return to Parma with Gigi.

"I understood from looking him in the eyes that it was an emotional one for him. He is committed, he wants to work, he knows this place – Parma is his home. We are proud that we can count on him. Seeing him come back to the club where his incredible career began will be a beautiful thing, and we know there are more pages still to write in his story."
