The Black Cats confirmed that the 28-year-old has put pen to paper on a four-year deal.

Juve have announced the fee was £6.5 million for a player who has won 14 international caps and featured at Euro 2012 last summer.

He was also a part of Italy's Confederations Cup campaign last month.

Giaccherini joined Juventus from Cesena in August 2011, and went on to win back-to-back Scudetti.

The attack-minded midfield man, who can play in the centre or out wide, made 40 league appearances for the Turin club, scoring four goals.

During his time with Cesena, he had loan spells with Forli, Bellaria Igea and Pavia.

He is the ninth player to be recruited in a busy summer for Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio, the Italian appointed in March as successor to the sacked Martin O'Neill.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
