Diawara set for Roma stay


RomaPress – Roma midfielder Amadou Diawara is a near certainty to remain at the club following months of transfer speculation.

The Guinean midfielder is unlikely to move before tomorrow’s deadline day and will remain at least until January.

Two members of the former Napoli man’s entourage informed RomaPress that a transfer being finalised before tomorrow is “very, very difficult.”

The update comes less than two hours after Roma announced the departure of fellow midfielder Javier Pastore, whose contract was terminated by mutual consent.

Attention now shifts to another Roma midfielder: Steven Nzonzi.

Like Pastore, the Giallorossi are hoping to reach an agreement to terminate the Frenchman’s contract in the coming hours.”
