Swedish midfielder Albin Ekdal has joined Cagliari on a season-long loan from Serie A rivals Juventus, the Italian news agency Ansa reported today.

The 22-year-old, who has been capped once by Sweden, will be co-owned by Juve and Cagliari, a practice that is common in the Italian game.

Ekdal moved to Juve from Brommapojkarna in his homeland in 2008, but he has only made three Serie A appearances for the Turin club, instead spending the majority of his time out on loan, first with Siena and then Bologna.
