Roma get full ownership of Nainggolan

Roma have announced that they have purchased full ownership of Radja Nainggolan for €9 million.

The Belgium international moved to the capital club in January 2014 on an initial loan deal before they purchased 50 per cent of his contract that summer.

However, after another bright season for Rudi Garcia’s men, after which he attracted interest from several European sides, Roma have moved to acquire all of the rights to the 27-year-old.

“Roma has reached an agreement with Cagliari Calcio to resolve the co-ownership of footballer Radja Nainggolan in Roma’s favor, in exchange for a fee of €9 million,” a statement on the club’s website read.

Nainggolan spoke of his delight at the news on Twitter, stating: “Today is a great day, I am finally 100% Giallorossi, what I have always wanted! I thank the club for the great effort.”

The former Piacenza player featured in 35 Serie A games for Roma in 2014-15, scoring five goals and picking up two assists.
