Pepe joins Chievo

The winger was released by Juventus at the end of last season, but will stay in Serie A as he joins the Verona club

Chievo have completed the signing of former Juventus winger Simone Pepe on a free transfer.

Pepe spent the past five seasons with Juve after joining from Udinese in 2010, and he won four Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia during his time in Turin.

However, the 31-year-old has been plagued by injuries in recent years and has made just 14 league appearances in the past three seasons.

The Italy international, who has 23 caps for his country, was released by the Turin side in the summer but has been given a new chance in Serie A and will try to rebuild his career with Chievo.
