Lemina wants Juventus stay


Mario Lemina is keen to stay at Juventus when his one-year loan deal expires at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.

The 22-year-old left Marseille for the Serie A champions at the start of this season for an initial fee of EUR500,000 and Juventus have the right to purchase him outright for EUR9.5m.

Lemina has made 13 appearances in all competitions for the Turin side this campaign and he hopes to have done enough to earn a permanent move.

"I would love to stay at Juventus for a long time," the Gabon international told Tuttosport.

"I want to win a lot of titles with this team.

"I immediately liked Juventus because of the organisation and the mentality, which is truly unique.

"The board of directors gave the team a lot of support to return to winning ways, also after the Champions League defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich."
