Juventus have confirmed the loan signing of Gladstone Pereira Della Valentina just before Wednesday’s transfer deadline.

The 20-year-old Brazilian, who plays for Cruzeiro, was linked with Juve last week, with Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi (pictured) confirming their interest.

“The player interests us, but everything depends on his EU passport,” he said.

Gladstone comes on a one-year loan, although reports say the club will have an option to sign him permanently next summer.
