Boca Juniors have announced Leandro Paredes is moving to AS Roma.

Boca president Daniel Angelici says the 19 year-old attacking midfielder is on his way to Roma.

"Paredes leaves tomorrow [today], we have authorised his departure for Italy," Angelici said.

"He will be on loan to Roma because he has no place here and he wants to grow professionally. Is this a loan? Yes, so that he can recover from his last injury."
