Juventus Football Club can today confirm that Angelo Ogbonna has completed a permanent transfer to English Premier League side West Ham United, who will pay a fee of €11 million to be spread over the next three financial years.
Following a short switch across the city from Torino in 2013, Ogbonna tasted immediate success on his debut in the black and white stripes, helping his new team-mates to keep a clean sheet as the Bianconeri romped to a thrilling 4-0 Italian Super Cup final triumph over Lazio in the capital.
Two Scudetto titles and Coppa Italia silverware were to follow for the Italian international, whose class and composure at the heart of defence shone through during his 55 appearances in all competitions for Juventus.
When Ogbonna was deployed the Bianconeri lost just three of 41 Serie A games, winning 30, and last season saw him record the team’s best individual pass completion rate with an impressive figure of 89.46 per cent.
He will now embark on a new challenge in the Premier League with Slaven Bilic’s West Ham United, who play their final season at Upton Park before moving to London's Olympic Stadium for the start of the 2016/17 campaign.
Everyone associated with Juventus would like to thank Angelo for his efforts over the past two years and wish him all the very best in his new adventure.
