Roma agree to meet Aquilani demands

Roma are ready to meet the contract demands of Alberto Aquilani.

Corriere dello Sport says Roma have informed Juventus to forget about any deal for the Italy international, who turned 24 yesterday.

Indeed, after months of wrangling, Roma chiefs Daniele Prade and Bruno Conti have assured Aquilani's Dad that he will be offered a new five-year contract worth £1.8 million-a-season.

Roma hope to announce Aquilani's new deal in the opening days of preseason training.
