Dean Huijsen was asked about his loan spell at Roma and what the future might hold for him as the Giallorossi do not have any buy option on him.

In a recent interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, the 18-year-old defender detailed his rapid ascent since joining Roma in January until the end of the season and confirmed his plans to return to Juve once campaign winds to an end.

“I only know that when they offered me to go to Roma I really liked the idea, because it’s a great club and then if someone like Mourinho calls you it’s difficult to say no.”

“I thought that if they called me it was because they were in need of my help. Then I conquered the rest. every minute played is the result of work and sacrifice.”

“From Mourinho to De Rossi, I adapted quickly to the change, also because these are two exceptional managers and people. I’m surrounded by great teammates: I have fun, I learn a lot.”

“My future? Roma has no buy option. But I learned one thing from football, you never know what can happen. What is certain is that I will return to Juventus and I will make myself available. It’s the first big club that believed in me, I can only have words of gratitude for them.”
