Juve swoop for Knezevic

Juventus have signed Croatia defender Dario Knezevic on a season-long loan deal from Livorno, the club confirmed on Monday.

Knezevic becomes the second reinforcement for the Bianconeri defence after Olof Mellberg’s switch to Turin from Aston Villa, which was agreed in January.

The 26-year-old Knezevic spent two seasons at Livorno following a move from his hometown club NK Rijeka in 2006, but heads for the exit door following the Tuscan side’s relegation to Serie B.

Knezevic played in Croatia’s first three games of Euro 2008 before an injury picked up against Poland ruled him out of the quarter-final against Turkey, which finished in elimination on penalties.
