Levante has confirmed Giuseppe Rossi has joined their ranks, but on loan.
Rossi joined the liga club from Fiorentina after struggling to return to fitness following his latest knee injury.
The former Villarreal man insists he’s joining the club to return back to fitness.
“Levante and Fiorentina have reached an agreement for the signing of Giuseppe Rossi until the end of the season,” a statement released by the Spanish club on Friday confirmed.
Rossi revealed to supporters on Twitter that he was saddened to be leaving the Artemio Franchi but was desperate to get back to playing regularly.
“I’m the first to be disappointed because I owe a debt to the Fiorentina fans,” Rossi said. “I gave my all in everything I’ve done, from therapy to training in recent times, because I wanted to continue to give them emotions on the pitch. But it’s hard to do when chances are few and far between.
“Football is life for me, and if you take that away from me I can never be happy. I hope that you and the Fiorentina fans can understand me because I want to smile again. I’ll always keep the Viola in my heart, and I can never forget the goosebumps you gave me on Sundays.”
Rossi excelled with Villarreal during his previous spell in La Liga, before he twice damaged knee ligaments in a 12-month period prior to his move to Fiorentina.
