Fiorentina sell Brillante to Sydney

Fiorentina have officially sold Joshua Brillante to Sydney FC, returning the player to Australia after two years in Italy.

The 23-year-old was picked up by Fiorentina in the summer of 2014, after promising spells with Goldcoast United and the Newcastle Jets.

Unfortunately Serie A proved a harsh step up for the midfielder, who was loaned to Empoli and then to Serie B side Como.

“ACF Fiorentina communicate that they have definitively sold the rights to the sporting services of the footballer Joshua Brillante (born 1993) to the club Sydney FC,” reads a statement on Fiorentina's site.
