Palmeiras fullback Matias Vina confirms Roma move

Palmeiras fullback Matias Vina has confirmed he's moving to Roma.

Vina is on his way to Italy this week to complete his transfer as he jets from Brazil today.

It will be a move worth €11m plus up to €2.5m in various bonuses.

“For me, this is a dream coming true. Roma is a top club. It will be an honour to be coached by Mourinho," the Uruguayan youngster said, referring to new Roma coach Jose Mourinho.

Vina will step in to cover Leonardo Spinazzola as he recovers from an Achilles injury.
