Celta Vigo confirm the signing of Giuseppe Rossi from Fiorentina

New Jersey-born Italy international Giuseppe Rossi has joined Celta Vigo from Fiorentina.

The injury-plagued forward made 33 appearances for the Viola, scoring 16 goals, since joining the Serie A side in January 2013.

But successive knee injuries cruelled Rossi's time in Florence and he spent the second half of last season on loan at Levante.

Rossi, 29, previously enjoyed a successful five-year spell in La Liga at Villarreal, where he scored 54 goals in 136 league appearances.

Celta Vigo's next match is against Atletico Madrid on Sept. 10, after the international break.
