Micah Richards has joined Fiorentina on loan from Manchester City.

The long-serving 26-year old defender has signed a season-long loan deal with the Italian Serie A club following the arrival of Bacary Sagna at City this summer.

Richards, who has been at the club since 2001, has made 245 senior appearances since making his debut in 2005 but will now get the chance to play regular football in Florence.
