By Obiajulu Chiagoziem

Juventus have signed PSV midfielder Mohamed Ihattaren and loaned the teenager to Sampdoria.

The Dutch youngster has signed a four-year deal with Juventus, having arrived for a fee reported to be in the region of €5-6million.

The 19-year-old who had less than a year remaining on his PSV contract, must wait for his Bianconeri debut after he was allowed to join Serie A rivals, Sampdoria for the remainder of the season.

He made his PSV debut at the age of 16 and went on to score 10 goals in 74 appearances for the Eredivisie side.

PSV director of football John de Jong said: “Mohamed has gone through ups and downs in the last few years. As a young prospect, his career got off to a bright start but it has taken a turn and he has not fulfilled his potential for various reasons.

“It is a great pity, in particular for Mohamed himself. We are happy for Mohamed that he has made a move to Italy and hope he will live up to his potential.”
