OFFICIAL: Roma sign Gigi Wijnaldum

Roma have confirmed the signing of Dutch midfielder Gini Wijnaldum on a season-long loan from Paris Saint-Germain. The 31-year-old arrived in Rome on Thursday and underwent his club medical before the club officially announced the deal.

According to various reports, the deal is expected to cost in the region of €10m and will become an obligation if Roma finish in the top four.

PSG are also reportedly covering roughly half of his €9m per season salary during the loan period.

Speaking after the move was complete, the midfielder outlined why he chose to make the move to Rome this summer:

It’s a really good feeling to be a Roma player. Everyone I have spoken to has given me great feedback about the club and its fans.

The club made it clear just how much they wanted me in the efforts they made to complete the deal, which always gives a player a lot of confidence and belief. The reception from the supporters, on social media and elsewhere, has also been fantastic.

I promise to give 100% and help the team compete for all our targets this season.”
