TURIN, Italy (AP)

Juventus has completed the signing of Italy defender Angelo Ogbonna from city rivals Torino.

Ogbonna put pen to paper on a five-year deal on Thursday, tying him to the Serie A champion until 2018.

Juventus will pay 13 million euros to Torino over the next three years plus a further 2 million euros ''if Ogbonna achieves certain sporting targets stipulated in the agreement reached by the two clubs.''

The 25-year-old Ogbonna has won six caps for Italy and was part of Cesare Prandelli's European Championship squad last summer after impressive performances during Torino's promotion-winning campaign.
