Micah joins Fiorentina on season-long loan

Micah Richards has joined Serie A side Fiorentina until the end of the season.

Richards, City's longest-serving player, has made 245 appearances for the champions since making his debut away to Arsenal in October 2005, scoring 10 goals.

One of the most popular members of Manuel Pellegrini's squad, Micah has won 12 England caps to date and was an integral member of the City squad who won the title in 2011/12.

A succession of injuries saw the Birmingham-born defender gradually fall behind Pablo Zabaleta in the first-team pecking order and the arrival of Bacary Sagna meant Pellegrini had three top-class right-backs at his disposal this season.

Micah's last game for City was as skipper during the FA Community Shield defeat to Arsenal and everyone at MCFC wishes him the very best for the coming campaign.
