DONE DEAL: PSG midfielder Gini Wijnaldum excited to join Roma

PSG midfielder Gini Wijnaldum is delighted joining Roma.

The Frechman has arrived on loan with option to buy.

“It's a really good feeling to be a Roma player," Wijnaldum told the website.

“Everyone I have spoken to has given me great feedback about the club and its fans.

“The club made it clear just how much they wanted me in the efforts they made to complete the deal, which always gives a player a lot of confidence and belief. The reception from the supporters, on social media and elsewhere, has also been fantastic.

“I promise to give 100% and help the team compete for all our targets this season."

Roma sports chief Tiago Pinto said: "Georginio's decision to come to Roma is yet another example of players of the highest level, both in terms of their qualities on the pitch and off it, believing so strongly in the club's plans that they put all their energy into ensuring that negotiations reached a positive outcome.

“We cannot be anything other than delighted at his arrival. Gini brings qualities that will further enhance the competitiveness of our squad and a natural leadership that has seen him become captain of one of the best national sides in the world."
