Juventus have confirmed the loan signing of striker Moise Kean from Everton, two years on from his initial departure for Goodison Park.
Kean, 21, still has three years left on his five-year deal on Merseyside, but has struggled for regular first-team action and was sent out to PSG last season.
And after it was revealed that Juventus were exploring a return for the youngster, the club have now officially announced the deal, which will last for two years.
Juventus have confirmed the return of striker Moise Kean on a two-year loan deal from Everton
The loan switch comes with an option to buy, as Sportsmail has reported, and Kean’s agent Mino Raiola was in Italy over recent days to negotiate the details.
If Juventus were to make the deal permanent, a €28million (£24m) price tag has been agreed, which would be paid out over three years.
There are also further bonuses of up to €3m (£2.6m) available if ‘sporting objectives’ are met during the temporary stay.
Kean had struggled for regular first-team football at Everton, scoring just four goals in total
With the loan deal itself worth €7m (£6m), the overall total of Kean’s switch stands at €38m (£32.5m).
After completing his medical, Kean has been pictured pulling on a Juventus jersey again, and the club have described the reunion as a ‘homecoming’.
He joined Everton from the Old Lady for £23.5m in 2019, but enjoyed a return to form during his stay at PSG, where he scored 13 goals in 26 league appearances.
Rafa Benitez had included Kean in his matchday squads this season, but he was sent off 15 minutes into the second half of their Carabao Cup tie at Huddersfield Town.

His form at Everton has been equally unimpressive, with a return of just four goals from 39 games in total, and he remained unable to settle.
Everton need to offload players to help boss Benitez strengthen elsewhere, and Kean’s exit marks their first piece of business on deadline day.
Juventus, meanwhile, were short a forward after they confirmed legendary talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has re-joined Manchester United.
Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford has now been officially sealed, with the £12.9m fee – plus £6.9m in add-ons – payable over five years.
