Fiorentina have swooped for PSV Eindhoven's highly-rated defender Manuel da Costa.

In a stunning piece of transfer work, Fiorentina sports chief Pantaleo Corvino has landed the Portugal international from under the noses of Europe's biggest clubs in a quickfire deal.

PSV last night confirmed the sale, believed to be for around £3 million, with Da Costa agreeing terms on a five-year contract.
