Fiorentina have signed Jordan Veretout from Aston Villa on a four-year deal.
Jordan Veretout spent last season on loan at St Etienne and it is reported the move will be worth around £6m.
“It’s a great day for me,” he told the Serie A club’s website. “I’m ready to give my best for Fiorentina. My position is in the centre of the midfield and I like to entertain people. I know Carlos Sanchez here and I’m delighted to link up with him again.”
Veretout made 25 Premier League appearances for Villa in 2015-16 before joining St Etienne on loan a year ago. He featured 35 times for them in Ligue 1 last season and scored three goals.
His arrival in Florence comes a day after they sold Federico Bernardeschi to Juventus and he becomes their sixth new signing this summer, after Vitor Hugo, Nikola Milenkovic, Bruno Gaspar, Rafik Zekhnini and Petko Hristov.
