Diego Llorente edges closer to Roma return

It is only a matter of time before Spanish defender Diego Llorente makes his return to Roma.

Following his six-month loan from Leeds United, Roma declined the initial option included in Llorente’s deal and are now negotiating a new formula to bring back the veteran centreback.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport, talks between the two clubs are progressing at rapid pace and an agreement is expected to be reached soon.
