“Neither words nor actions could express the difficulty in taking this decision because I’m immensely proud of my time here,” began the defender-midfielder in a Twitter post.

“Every single person at the club will forever have a special place in my heart, from the Coaches to my teammates, through to the staff and most importantly the wonderful and vociferous fans.

“Even though Juventus offered me a new contract, I humbly and respectfully opted to commit myself to a club elsewhere.

“It’ll be unbearably austere to play against Juventus in the future, but I had to make this commitment, purely to the interest of my family, and it’s my hope and wish that the fans would understand and accept this decision.

“I played with legends and some of the best players in the world, in a golden Juventus generation, and will miss them all.

“To the two great Coaches I worked under – Massimiliano Allegri and Antonio Conte – and their support staff, I say ‘thank you’ for making me a better player.

“Management acquired my services with a fortune from Udinese and I can’t thank them enough for positively changing my life.

“The unflinching emotional support I received from the fans, even in my worst injury times, was so amazing that I feel deep love for this club and will forever appreciate the kindness shown to me.”

The Ghanaian, 29, has gone on to make 156 appearances for the champions since arriving from Udinese in 2012, despite two serious knee injuries.
