OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL: Frederik Sorensen loaned to Hellas Verona, Valerio Rosseti to Atalanta

Frederik Sorensen finally has a new club. The same goes for the recently-acquired Valerio Rosseti, who has had to deal with his own kind of drama this summer considering the club he came from. New clubs for everybody! Well, not quite.

Just a pair of new clubs for these two young and talented players. Maybe more news in the coming days.

The official word on both players' immediate futures, courtesy of Juventus' official website:

Juventus Football Club can confirm that Frederik Sorensen and Valerio Rosseti have joined Hellas Verona and Atalanta respectively on loan deals.

The Danish defender has agreed terms on a season-long loan with an option to make the switch permanent, while the Italian forward has been loaned out for two years, with the agreement also including the possibility of an outright purchase.

The good: At least they now know where they'll be playing.

The not so good: We don't know if they're going to be coming back to Juventus next year — or ever.

Rosseti, who is looked at as a rather intriguing prospect at the age of 20, came to Juventus earlier this summer after Siena had some rather unfortunate financial happenings and had to file for bankruptcy in July. That allowed all of Siena's players to become free agents, and Juventus, who had been linked to the player in the past, swooped in and picked up Rosseti on a free transfer earlier this summer.

We know the tale of Sorensen by now. A loan move with Leeds United looked all but certain to happen earlier this month, and then it fell apart in the blink of an eye. Instead of just sticking with Juve, he was basically linked with a loan move in the immediate away from Turin. Iceman (unexpectedly) cometh back, then Iceman immediately go back out on loan.

At least they know who their new clubs are. At least there's that. And just as a reminder, guys, when you do play against Juventus this season, don't go all H.A.M. and make us want to throw things across the living room.
