Fiorentina sign Bruno Gaspar

Fiorentina have looked to Portugal to snap up defender Bruno Gaspar on a five-year deal from Vitoria de Guimaraes.

The 24-year-old right-back becomes Stefano Pioli's first signing of the transfer window since taking over from Paulo Sousa.

"I'm happy to be here,” Gaspar told his new club’s official website. "Fiorentina is a club with a lot of history.''

The Benfica youth product made 28 appearances in the Primeira Liga last season, helping his former club to a fourth-place finish.
