Official: Fiorentina keep Pezzella

Fiorentina have officially signed defender German Pezzella from Real Betis on a permanent deal.

A statement on Fiorentina’s official website confirms the club have exercised their option to buy Pezzella, who has put pen to paper on a four-year contract.

Reports suggest the Viola will pay Betis €10m on top of their €500,000 loan fee for the Argentine, who scored once in 35 appearances over the past season.

Despite helping Fiorentina finish eighth, the 26-year-old had to cope with the tragic loss of his centre-back partner Davide Astori in March.
