Rome: England international defender Micah Richards on Monday agreed to a season`s loan to Serie A side Fiorentina from English champions Manchester City.

The 26-year-old -- capped 13 times -- has gone from being City`s player of the year when they won their first Premier League title in 2012 to just a handful of appearances for them in their title-winning campaign last term as Argentinian rightback Pablo Zabaleta was the undisputed first choice.

Fiorentina, who finished just outside the Champions League spots last season, also signed 25-year-old Slovenian midfielder Jasmin Kurtic on loan from rivals Sassuolo.
