Juventus have confirmed that midfielder Andrea Pirlo has completed a move to New York City FC.
Italy international Pirlo will play alongside Frank Lampard and David Villa at the Major League Soccer club after leaving for a side not from his homeland for the first time in his career.
"What a signing! Welcome to the club Andrea Pirlo!" wrote Lampard on Facebook.

With a tribute on their website, Juventus thanked the 36-year-old for four seasons in Turin, in which he won four successive Serie A titles.
Pirlo will officially move on 21 July, meaning he will not make his debut alongside Lampard in Sunday's league game against Toronto FC at Yankee Stadium.
"I had several opportunities to play outside of Italy, but I never had a doubt in picking New York," Pirlo said.
The Italian started his career with Brescia and played for Inter Milan before joining their city rivals AC Milan in 2001.
After a decade at the club he moved on a free transfer to Juventus. There he scored 19 goals, including 15 free-kicks, in 164 games, winning the Serie A title in each of his four seasons. He has won 115 caps for Italy, scoring 13 goals.
