Fiorentina swoop for Romania keeper Lobont
ROME, Jan 23 (Reuters) - Fiorentina have bought Romanian international goalkeeper Bogdan Lobont from Ajax, the Serie A side announced on their website.
The club have not released any details of the deal, but Italian press agency ANSA reported that the 28-year-old had signed a five-year contract worth £1million per season.
Fiorentina have been looking for a new keeper since Sebastian Frey damaged cruciate ligaments in his left knee during an Italian Cup match against Juventus two weeks ago.
Frey is expected to be out of action for the rest of the season.
Lobont began his career at Rapid Bucharest before moving to the Netherlands to play for Ajax at the start of the 2000-01 season.
