Villarreal CF have signed defensive midfield player Alessio Tacchinardi from Juventus FC on a one-year contract.

Vital experience
Villarreal have been scouring the market for a holding midfielder and believe the 30-year-old Tacchinardi, who has a decade of experience with the Bianconeri, fits the bill.

Medal collection
Tacchinardi started his career with Atalanta BC before joining Juventus in 1994. During his spell with 'La Vecchia Signora' he collected five Italian titles, one Italian Cup, one European Champion Clubs' Cup and one European/South American Cup. The former Italian international, who played 16 games last season, arrives at the Spanish side for an undisclosed fee.
