Roma have confirmed the arrival of Diego Llorente on a loan deal until the end of the 22/23 season. He joins them from Leeds United, with the option to make the move permanent down the line.
Llorente has been signed as the replacement for Matias Vina, who signed for Bournemouth recently.

“When the possibility of coming to Roma was presented to me I did not need to think about it twice,” Diego Llorente said.
“Coming here is a big step forward for me in my career and I want to make the most of this opportunity.
“Rome is beautiful, an incredible city, and I think it is almost impossible to find a better place to play football.
“The club is fighting to achieve great things on all fronts this season and I am ready to make my contribution towards that.”
Diego Llorente made the move to Elland Road in 2020 from Real Sociedad. Although he had a bright start to life with Leeds, his contribution eventually started to reduce progressively. The Spaniard has been given the number 14 shirt by the Giallorossi. And with the second half of the season remaining, there will be ample opportunities for him to impress and help build upon their current sixth place in the team.
