French defender Malcuit joins Fiorentina on loan from Napoli


Napoli’s French defender Kevin Malcuit has signed for Serie A rivals Fiorentina on loan, both clubs confirmed on Thursday.

The 29-year-old joined Napoli in 2018 from French club Lille, but has been injury prone with an eight-month layoff last season with a ruptured cruciate ligament.

“SSC Napoli officially announce the transfer of Kevin Malcuit to Fiorentina. The French defender moves to the Viola club on loan,” Napoli said.
