Palermo announce Cassani will be sold to Fiorentina
Cassani joined the Viola in the summer on loan until June 2012, but it seems his long-term future will be in Florence.
"There will not be any problems with regard to Fiorentina taking up their option to sign him outright.
"Could a deal be brought forward and completed in January? That's irrelevant. Cassani is already a Viola player."
