Bayer Leverkusen says Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal has moved to Italian club Juventus on a five-year deal.

Leverkusen sports director Rudi Voeller said Saturday that Vidal had ''developed into a player of international class'' in four years with the Bundesliga team.

The club said Vidal signed his Juventus contract on Friday.

Vidal had one year left on his contract with Leverkusen, which finished second in the Bundesliga last season. The club gave no details of the transfer fee.
