Ndicka is now considered an untouchable starter for De Rossi’s team – his strength, pace and heading abilities have made him a consistent part of Roma’s backline and the player is no longer considered just an option off the bench.

The defender’s future is yet to be written as he is expected to draw considerable interest ahead of the summer window.
