Roma complete loan deal for Fazio

Serie A outfit Roma have completed the signing of Federico Fazio from Tottenham on an initial loan deal. 

Fazio, 29, joins Roma on a season-long loan or a fixed fee of €1.2 million, the club announced on Wednesday. 

However, the agreement includes the option to buy the Argentine defender, depending on the completion of certain sporting targets, for a fee of €3.2m.

"I am very happy to join a great team like Roma," Fazio said. 

"I really want to start training and get to know my new team-mates and coach."
