Football: PSG's Sissoko signs for La Viola

Serie A side Fiorentina have announced the loan signing of midfielder Mohamed Sissoko from Paris Saint-Germain until the end of the season.

La Viola said the 28-year-old Malian international "joins the club on a loan deal with an option to purchase".

Sissoko, who is currently with his country at the Africa Cup of Nations, has fallen out of favour at PSG this season, making just three league appearances.

He previously spent three and a half years in Italy with Juventus before joining PSG in 2011.

Fiorentina sit sixth in Italy's top flight, 13 points behind leaders and champions Juve.
