Fiorentina's Donati bid rejected

Bayer Leverkusen director Rudi Voller confirms Fiorentina “asked me for Giulio Donati on loan, but we need him.”

Donati is a 24-year-old ex Italy Under-21 international defender who Inter sold to Bayer Leverkusen last summer for €3m.

“It’s true, Daniele Pradè called me and asked for Donati on loan,” declared director of sport Voller to Bild.

“I replied we couldn’t do that, as we need him. There is a long season ahead with many games and our Coach also thinks very highly of Donati.”
