AS Roma sign Jonathan Silva in place of Emerson Palmieri

AS Roma have recruited the services of Jonathan Silva on an initial loan deal from Portuguese side Sporting. The Argentine is likely to occupy the back-up role which was left behind by the departure of Emerson Palmieri earlier this week. Speaking on the club's official website, Silva said: "I am very happy to have arrived in Rome, for me it is incredible. I am very motivated. I want to contribute to this great group of players.''

The Giallorossi will have the option to make the deal permanent at the end of the campaign, and sporting director Monchi suggested that the player's personality as well as quality played a role in the move, he said: "He is a young player who has already demonstrated personality and quality, characteristics that allowed him to play in an important club like Sporting."
