Roma coach Spalletti blocks Okaka's Bologna switch

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti has blocked Stefano Okaka's loan move to Bologna.

After securing the Italy U19 starlet to a new four-year contract, Spalletti chose to stop Okaka moving to Bologna, says Il Messaggero. The youngster won't be allowed to leave until a replacement signing is made.

Meanwhile, Roma are confident they can land Real Madrid attacker Julio Baptista on-loan if the Spanish giants complete their signing of Hamburg's Rafael van der Vaart.
