Fiorentina coach Emiliano Mondonico continues his plans for Serie A survival with the capture of Chilean international Jaime Valdes.

The talented midfielder joins Viola in a joint ownership with Bari, with whom he impressed last season.

For their part, Bari will acquire Fiorentina's Massimilano Scaglia who, after initially refusing, will now head in the opposite direction.

Meanwhile, Mondonico has spoken of his delight at his biggest pre-season signing, Hidetoshi Nakata.

The talented Japanese international arrived from Parma in a high-profile move this summer and has clearly impressed his new coach.

''Nakata - better than I thought,'' conceded Mondonico.

''In the last training session I put on the pitch my hypothetical regular attack, composed of Nakata, Rigano and Vryzas.

''I think they could play together in the Copa Italia on August 17.''
