FC Barcelona have officially announced the loan of their player, Cristian Tello, to Fiorentina. His current loan agreement at FC Porto will be rescinded in order for him to join up with the Viola until 30th June 2016.

The 24 year old winger has been at Barcelona since the age of eleven, and has made 59 appearances for the first team, scoring eleven goals.

On loan with Porto during the last eighteen months, Tello thanked the club and fans on his Instagram page, and hinted that he was looking to move on for more playing time.

The official announcement from Fiorentina is still to come, following the player's medical yesterday. Should the loan move prove to be a success, there has reportedly been a fee agreed between the two clubs for a permanent transfer in the summer.
