Albin Ekdal (born 28 July 1989 in Bromma, Stockholm) is a Swedish footballer who currently plays as an attacking midfielder for Siena on loan from his original club Juventus.

On May 23, 2008, he signed an official four-year contract with Juventus. Ekdal turned down offers from big clubs like Chelsea and Inter when he was just 16 and 17 years old because his father, the journalist Lennart Ekdal said he had to finish high school first.[1] Albin Ekdal made his Serie A debut on October 18, 2008 in the 1-2 defeat against Napoli when he came on as a substitute in the 75th minute, replacing Christian Poulsen.

On July 15, 2009 A.C. Siena signed Ekdal on loan from Juventus F.C. for a season.
