"The value of the deal is €5.1m and is one of the most important transfers for Partizan in the last 10 years. Fiorentina was not the only club concerned, there was interest [also] from Hamburg and more.

"I wish to congratulate Nikola and his family, who have behaved in an exemplary way and I wish him all the best to make a great career.''
