Ecuador teenager Cevallos joins Juventus on loan

Juventus confirmed on Monday that the club has acquired midfielder Jose Francisco Cevallos on loan from LDU Quito for the remainder of the season.

Cevallos will spend the rest of the campaign with Juve ahead of a proposed permanent move to Turin over the summer.

The 18-year-old has recently broken into Ecuador's Under-20 team after some good displays for Quito, and he is the son of former Ecuador national team goalkeeper Jose Cevallos, who earned 89 caps for his country.
