Southampton Transfer News: Dani Osvaldo Moves To Juventus On Loan

Dani Osvaldo has completed a loan move to Juventus that will see him play in Italy until the summer. According to BBC Sport, the deal also includes an option for the Italian giants to buy the player for a £15 million fee. It became clear during the week that Southampton were preferred to let their record signing leave in the transfer window €“ the Argentine arrived at the club in the summer from Roma for a fee of £15 million and has only scored three goals in that time. Osvaldo has a career troubled by disciplinary problems €“ in 2011 Serie A side Roma suspended him after he punched a teammate in an argument on the pitch during the game and since moving to Southampton he has been involved in a touchline row at Newcastle and was subsequently fined by the FA and banned for several games. Earlier in the week the Premier League club also suspended the player after an apparent fight during a training session. With the departure of Osvaldo the club are left with a shortage of attacking options, meaning that we may see them make a late night bid for a striker before the end of the window.
