                    === Juventus completes Asamoah deal ===
 Turin,  Italy (Sports  Network) -  Juventus  secured the  permanent rights  to
 midfielder  Kwadwo Asamoah  on Wednesday in a  deal that will see Juve pay $12
 million to Udinese over the next three years.
 Juve  purchased 50  percent of Asamoah's rights from Udinese last summer after
 the Ghanaian spent four successful seasons at the Stadio Friuli.
 But  after netting  three goals and appearing  in 40 games for Juve, which won
 Serie A and reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League, Asamoah now has
 a permanent home in Turin.
 "Juventus  Football Club  announces that  it  has terminated  the current  co-
 ownership  agreement with Udinese Calcio concerning the registration rights of
 Kwadwo Asamoah," read a club statement from Juventus.
 The  24-year-old  Asamoah joins  the Old  Lady on  a four-year contract, while
 Juventus  also announced that it has extended the co-ownership agreements with
 Udinese  over the  registration of  Mauricio  Isla and  Cristian Pasquato  for
 another 12 months.
