Man, Daniele Pradè has been busy this week. First, he snagged Tino Costa on loan from Genoa, then added Mauro Zárate from West Ham, wrapped up a tricky move for Cristian Tello, and now has somewhat unexpectedly renewed Nenad Tomović for another 4 years, according to Gianluca de Marzio. With his contract up in the summer, Tommy was widely expected to seek pastures new, either in this window or on a Bosman.

The 28-year-old defender is in his fourth season with Fiorentina. After starting out at Red Star Belgrade (and holy smokes, do those dudes find some talented players), he moved to Genoa in 2009 before being farmed out to Lecce in 2011. He was one of Pradè's first purchases, and has been a steady if unspectacular performer since, especially for a yearly salary of €500,000; he may have gotten a slight raise with the new contract, but I doubt it'd be too much. Next up for Pradè is an extension for Matías Vecino.

He's made 112 appearances for Fiorentina, scoring 1 goal and providing 4 assists. Most comfortable on the right side of a back three, he can also do a job at centerback or rightback in a back four, although he leaves something to be desired in both positions. He is, however, good for one incongruously brilliant run down the touchline a year, so he's got that going for him. Which is nice.
