MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- Manchester United manager David Moyes says midfielder Anderson will join Fiorentina on loan.

The 25-year-old Brazilian player has only made four Premier League appearances for United this season and underwent a medical test in Italy on Friday.

Moyes says ''we've not been able to get him as many games as he'd hoped, or we hoped we might get him, so we feel it's a good opportunity for him.

''He's going to a good club in a good league so, hopefully, it will benefit him.''

Anderson joined United from Porto in 2007 and has since made 104 Premier League appearances.
