PHOTO: Fiorentina Confirm Defender Arrival

Meh, didn't want him anyway...

Just as an update to the previous post about Micah Richards - Fiorentina have now confirmed his arrival in Italy ahead of a 'potential' transfer from Manchester City.

It's looking like Liverpool's Sebastian Coates - who is now confirmed to be heading up for a medical - is the number one defensive target with any further reinforcements at the back depending on moving someone out. The prime candidates for that would look to be Valentin Roberge, who has been linked with Reims, and Mobido Diakite who, ironically, may have just had his rumoured return to Florence ruined by their imminent signing of Richards.

Bit of a shame but not really the end of the world!
