French midfielder Bryan Dabo has signed for Serie A side Fiorentina from Saint-Étienne, the Italian club said on Tuesday without giving financial details.

The 25-year-old has one cap for the French Under-21 side, and started his career at Montpellier, before a brief loan spell in England with Blackburn Rovers.

“Fiorentina announces the signing of the player Bryan Dabo from Saint-Étienne,” the Tuscany club said in a statement.

“He has won the French title with Montpellier in the 2011-12 season. The new Viola player will be in Florence today for his medicals.”

Fiorentina, 11th in Serie A, already boosts a strong French contingent with Cyril Théréau, Jordan Veretout, Valentin Eysseric and Vincent Laurini.
