Iturbe joins Hellas

Hellas Verona have signed Argentina forward Juan Iturbe on a season-long loan deal from Porto.

The 20-year-old, who spent time on loan with River Plate in his home nation earlier this year, will bolster coach Andrea Mandorlini's ranks at the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi as Verona embark on a first season in Serie A for 11 years.

A short statement on Hellas' official website announced Iturbe's arrival in Verona and confirmed the deal struck with Portuguese champions Porto includes an option to buy the right-footed winger.
