Rodriguez: I'm close to Viola renewal

Gonzalo Rodriguez has insisted that he wants to stay at Fiorentina, despite links of a deal with Napoli.

Reports suggested that the Viola defender could be the subject of a bid before the transfer window shuts on Friday.

But the centre-back has claimed that he wants to renew his current deal in Tuscany.

“We are very close to a renewal with Fiorentina,” he told Radio Blue. “With a team like this and such a great company, it’s a lot easier.

“I’m delighted with team and how we’ve created a winning mentality.

“I’ve spoken about the link with Napoli, but I feel great in Florence. From my first day here I’ve been made to feel welcome.

“Sometimes there are things more important than money.”
