City confirm Jovetic deal
Jul 19, 2013 3:30 PM EST
Manchester City have completed the signing of Stevan Jovetic from Serie A side Fiorentina.
The Montenegro international moves to the Etihad Stadium following a hugely successful 2012-13 season with the Florence outfit.
The 23-year-old was an integral part of Vincenzo Montella's side last term, but could not inspire them to UEFA Champions League football as they narrowly missed out to Milan on the final day of the campaign.
However, Jovetic will now compete in Europe's premier club competition for new City manager Manuel Pellegrini after becoming the Chilean's fourth signing of the transfer window.
Jovetic's spell at the Stadio Artemio Franchi was blighted by a cruciate ligament injury that forced him to miss the entirety of the 2010-11 campaign.
However, the forward recovered superbly from that set back and was instrumental in Fiorentina's rise to the top six of Serie A last term.
Jovetic made 34 appearances for Fiorentina in 2012-13, scoring 13 goals.
