Juventus have confirmed the signing of Zdenek Grygera on a five-year contract, with the Ajax defender to join the Turin giants in July.
Grygera rejected a contract offer to remain in Holland and has been quick to agree a deal that binds him to Juve until 2012.
The Czech Republic international had looked to be on his way to the Serie B leaders in January, but the fee desired by Ajax to agree to his departure was deemed too steep.
Having already struck a deal for Hasan Salihamidzic of Bayern Munich, it would appear the fallen titans are already planning for life back in the top flight next season.
"Juventus have finalised a deal with Zdenek Grygera, who signed a five-year deal starting from July 1, 2007," read a statement on the club's website.
