"I am very happy to be at Fiorentina and I hope to help the team to fight for the first positions," he said as he was presented to the media.

"Here at Fiorentina there are great players with whom I can train and learn, like Mario Gomez, Giuseppe Rossi and Massimo Ambrosini - there is a big difference compared to Bolton.

"I had received several offers from England and from Spain, but I've chosen Fiorentina for the confidence they showed in me and for the type of (Vincenzo) Montella's game."
