Edimilson Fernandes is delighted with his move to Fiorentina.
The West Ham midfielder has joined the Viola on a season-long loan.
“I could've gone elsewhere, as I had offers from England and Germany, but I think my qualities make me more suited to Serie A," he told Le Matin.
“I feel that I have matured after my spell in England and hope now to have a role that makes the best of my abilities.
“From the first chats with the Coach Stefano Pioli, I can tell that he is counting on me. I hope to find in Italy what I was missing in England."
