The Juventus midfielder has ended speculation that he could be on his way to the premier League by signing a new deal with the Italian club.

Paul Pogba joined Juventus on a free transfer back in 2012 after refusing to sign a new deal with Manchester United, and is now one of the most promising youngsters in world soccer.

The French international has been at the center of much transfer speculation this summer, with links to many European clubs after his impressive performance at the World Cup.

Both Arsenal and Chelsea were reportedly interested in signing Pogba, while French club PSG were also keen, but the 21 year-old never seemed to favor any club.

And now all speculation has been brought to an end, as the former United man signed a new deal with Juve which will keep him with the club until 2019, according to Gazzetta dello Sport in Italy.

The Frenchman’s current deal with the Turin side expires in two years and it’s thought that his new deal would take him up to £75,000 a week, after tax.
