Chris Smalling: Manchester United defender set for Roma loan move
Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has travelled to Italy to finalise a loan move to Serie A side Roma, says boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Premier League club have reportedly agreed a season-long deal with Roma paying a fee of £2.7m.
Smalling joined United from Fulham in 2010 and signed a new contract at Old Trafford in December.
“This opportunity for Chris has come up in the last couple of days,” said Solskjaer on Friday.
We’ve got six fit centre-backs. I couldn’t promise him regular football.”
