Morocco international midfielder Houssine Kharja has officially joined Fiorentina from Genoa on a two-year deal, the Tuscan club said on Thursday. There is also an option for a third year.

Kharja spent the second half of last season on loan at Inter Milan and although he will play for Fiorentina next season, Genoa still own half of his playing licence.

Kharja has made 64 appearances for Morocco since making his debut in 2003 and he has scored five goals for his national team.
