Bobby Duncan has completed a permanent move to Fiorentina from Liverpool, ending a turbulent few days for the teenage forward.
Duncan's future hit the headlines last Wednesday after a remarkable statement from his representative Saif Rubie accused Liverpool of "mentally bullying" the 18-year-old by keeping him at the club against his will.
Liverpool pledged to seek a resolution with Duncan and described Rubie's allegations as "inaccurate" and "inflammatory".
Fiorentina are reported to have paid € 2million to Liverpool, who retain a 20 per cent sell-on clause.
Ante Rebic-Andre Silva
Ante Rebic has completed his switch to AC Milan, with Andre Silva moving in the opposite direction to Eintracht Frankfurt.
Rebic joins Milan on Monday's transfer deadline, the Croatia international swapping the Bundesliga for Serie A on a two-year loan deal.

Rebic had been linked to Serie A rivals Inter throughout the transfer window but the former Fiorentina forward – who arrived at Eintracht from La Viola on an initial loan deal in 2016 – returns to Italy via Milan.
RB Leipzig have signed Roma forward Patrik Shick on loan for the rest of the season.
The Bundesliga club will pay a fee of €3.5million, with a further €500,000 depending on certain performance-related conditions being met.
If Leipzig qualify for the 2020-21 Champions League, they will have the option to make Shick's transfer permanent for €29m.
The 23-year-old Czech Republic international joined Roma on an initial loan from Sampdoria in August 2017, having impressed with 11 goals in his maiden Serie A season.
Jesé Rodríguez is poised to swap the red, white and blue of Paris Saint-Germain for the green and white of Sporting Lisbon with the Canary Islander in the Portuguese capital ahead of penning a loan deal with Sporting.
The 26-year-old Spanish player arrives on a season loan with the Liga Nos outfit having an option to buy.
