Ex-Roma midfielder Gini Wijnaldum signs with Al-Ettifaq

Andy Mattioli

Former Roma midfielder Gini Wijnaldum will not be playing in Europe anytime soon.

The Dutch international who concluded an underwhelming loan spell at Roma last season, finally decided to sign a long-term deal with Saudi club Al-Ettifaq.

His signing was made official earlier today as Wijnaldum permanently exits from Paris Saint-Germain.

Wijnaldum – according to several reports in Italy – had unsuccessfully offered to return to Roma on lower wages, but the Giallorossi were not interested in extending his deal beyond last season.
