Fiorentina sign Hoffenheim’s Compper

Serie A club Fiorentina signed former Germany international Marvin Compper from Hoffenheim on Friday after the defender was banished to the club's reserves earlier in the week.

"He has been given a contract until 2016," Fiorentina said in a statement.

Compper, who has won one international cap, had been sent to the train with the Under-23 team of relegation-threatened Hoffenheim after what club officials said was a lack of motivation from the player.
