Ajax fullback Urby Emanuelson hopes Roma make a new approach for him in January.

"It doesn't surprise me that they have come in for me again," Emanuelson told De Telegraaf. "They approached my agent Brian Berkleef in the summer and told him that they would pay £5m.

"But a move was impossible because technical director Martin Van Geel banned any further departures after Ryan Babel and Wesley Sneijder.

"Roma are a great club and I would certainly be happy to play for them."
