Alonso & Fernandez sign new Fiorentina deals

The Chilean has extended his stay with the Serie A high-flyers until 2018 while the left-back has been awarded a new contract running to 2021 as a result of his impressive form

Marcos Alonso and Mati Fernandez have signed new contracts with Fiorentina.

Chile international Fernandez has extended his deal until June 30, 2018, while Alonso has agreed a new five-year contract until 2021.

Alonso has established himself as a key component of Paulo Sousa's side and has only missed three Serie A matches so far this season.

Fernandez has faced more of a battle for first-team football this term, particularly given the emergence of Matias Vecino, but has impressed during his 15 appearances in all competitions.

Fiorentina, who were comfortable 3-1 winners away to Palermo on Wednesday, are just a point behind Inter after 18 matches in Serie A.
