Michele Pazienza has returned to Udinese on loan from Juventus having failed to secure a regular starting place since moving from Napoli last summer.

The 29-year-old midfielder joined Udinese from Foggia in 2003, but a couple of years later he moved on loan to Fiorentina before making that switch permanent.

From there he joined Napoli in 2008 but left for Juve on a free transfer before the start of this season. He has made only one start and seven substitute appearances in the league for Juve.
