The defender, 28, has been brought in after the release of Brazilian Lucio, compounded by Kwadwo Asamoah's involvement in the African Nations Cup and Giorgio Chiellini suffering a thigh injury.

The deal also provides Juventus with a set price option to purchase the player outright this summer and he gave his thoughts on the move to the club's official website.

Peluso said:  “It is certainly a great feeling and I am very happy, my year could not have got off to a better start!"

“I will enjoy this splendid moment and hope to have many more. These have been the best months of my career and enabled me to arrive at Juventus. This is a dream come true."

“I think all the hard work in the smaller sides has helped me a great deal, as I earned everything I’ve got and hope to put my experience on to the field.

“I already know what awaits me with Antonio Conte. I always leave the pitch aware I’ve given my all. In today’s football it is important to know how to play in many different roles. I started out as a full-back, but do not have a preferred position.

“I thank all the fans who wrote to me and hope to repay their faith with my performances.”
