The Manchester United midfielder travelled to Italy on Thursday for talks with the Serie A club's sporting director Daniele Prade.

Fiorentina posted a photograph of the talks on their website and said a medical would take place today.

And United boss David Moyes later confirmed a loan deal rather than a permanent transfer was the plan.

He said: "We've not been able to get him as many games as we hoped. We feel it's a good opportunity for him - he's going to a good club in a good league so hopefully that gets him some benefit."

Anderson has struggled for first-team football under Moyes in in seventh season at Old Trafford.

The Brazil international, who cost a reported £27m when he joined United from Porto in 2007, has made just four Premier League appearances since Sir Alex Ferguson's departure.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
