Fiorentina confirm Compper & Rebic moves to RB Leipzig

The German defender has joined the 2. Bundesliga outfit on a permanent deal, but the Croatia international is only going to the Red Bull Arena on loan
Fiorentina have confirmed that Marvin Compper and Ante Rebic have been transferred to RB Leipzig.

German defender Compper has moved to the Red Bull Arena on a permanent deal, having penned a three-year contract with Alex Zorniger's side.

Croatia international forward Rebic, though, has only joined the 2. Bundesliga on loan.

Compper only arrived at Fiorentina from Hoffenheim in January of last year but has decided to return to his homeland after being told he was surplus to requirements at the Artemio Franchi by coach Vincenzo Montella.

Rebic, meanwhile, signed a five-year contract with the Viola 12 months ago but has decided to leave on loan in pursuit of regular game time.
