Roma have secured the services of Leeds United defender Diego Llorente until the end of the season.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport, the Giallorossi were able to complete a deal for an additional defender late in the transfer window.

Llorente, 29 years old, will sign with the capital club on loan with buy option. The centreback will replace Matias Vina who is expected to join Bournemouth in the coming hours.

The Spaniard grew up in Real Madrid’s youth sector before moving on to Rayo Vallecano and Malaga. He completed a move to Leeds in 2020.
