Bologna do deal for Ekdal

Posted on 09/07/2010


Bologna have apparently reached an agreement with Juventus to co-own Albin Ekdal, the Swedish midfield player. 

Ekdal spent last season at Siena where he established himself as a top prospect, making 20 starting appearances. 

There were reports that Juventus would keep him this season, but the club hierarchy feel he would be better served getting more regular first team experience elsewhere. 

Bologna apparently got the go ahead to bring in Ekdal last night and are now waiting for the player to give his consent. 

The Felsinei don’t expect any problems and hope Ekdal will be available for pre-season training next week.
