Liverpool miss out as Digne leaves PSG for Roma

Lucas Digne has completed his transfer from Paris Saint-Germain to AS Roma.

The French left-back has disappointed Liverpool by opting to join the Giallorossi on a season-long loan with the view to a permanent move.

Brendan Rodgers was paying particular attention to 22-year-old Digne's situation earlier in the summer but dropped his interest when Roma came knocking."

The deal was confirmed in a statement by Roma, which read: "The defender arrives from the French club on a temporary deal until June 30, 2016 in exchange for a loan fee of 2.5m euros (£1.8m).

"The agreement includes an option to make the move permanent ahead of the 2016-17 season."
