LONDON (Reuters) - Sweden midfielder Dejan Kulusevski completed his transfer from Atalanta to Juventus in a 35 million euros ($39.10 million) deal, the Serie A champions said on Thursday.

The 19-year-old, who was born in Sweden to Macedonian parents, has signed a 4-1/2 year contract but will return on loan to Parma until the end of the season.

Kulusevski, who signed a one-year loan deal with Parma in July, has scored four goals in 17 appearances.

The teenager made his senior international debut for Sweden in a Euro 2020 qualifying win over the Faroe Islands in November.
