Vitor Hugo signs for Fiorentina in switch from Palmeiras
Fiorentina have replaced the departing Gonzalo Rodriguez by signing Brazilian defender Vitor Hugo from Palmeiras.
Vitor Hugo, 26, signed a four-year contract at the Stadio Artemio Franchi just over a week after Rodriguez made his last appearance in a 2-2 Serie A draw with Pescara.
Rodriguez is now a free agent after opting against extending his contract in Tuscany.
Vitor Hugo, whose arrival at Fiorentina was announced on the club's official website, won the Campeonato Brasileiro and the Copa do Brasil during his time with Palmeiras.
