Diego Llorente to sign permanent deal with Roma after loan spell

Andy Mattioli

Diego Llorente is expected to remain at the capital club beyond this season.

The Spanish defender returned to Roma earlier in the summer following his six-month loan from Leeds United.

Llorente made his return once again on a dry loan from Leeds until the end of the season.

However, according to The Athletic it is very likely that Llorente will sign a permanent deal with the Giallorossi next year as the player is out of Leeds’ plans and enjoys a good relationship with Mourinho and the club.

The initial loan formula enabled Roma to sign him this summer under strict Financial Fair Play constraints.
