Al Ain winger Bastos joins Roma on loan

AS Roma have signed Brazilian winger Michel Bastos on loan from United Arab Emirates outfit Al Ain.

The 30-year old, who arrived in the UAE from Lyon in August 2013, has joined the Giallorossi for the remainder of the season with the view to a permanent deal.

Bastos told Gazzetta dello Sport: "I am very happy to be here. Forza Roma!"

The former Schalke loanee, who holds a French passport, underwent a medical at Roma on Monday and will now link up with former Lille boss Rudi Garcia in Rome.
