Serie A - Nainggolan 'set to finalise Roma switch'

Radja Nainggolan is expected to formalise terms of agreement and undergo a medical to complete a move to Roma.

The Cagliari midfielder yesterday saw links over his future intensify, with Napoli and then the Giallorossi both thought to have entered bids.

It is understood that Roma have taken the advantage and the player will, during the coming week, complete formalities on a four-and-a-half-year contract paying €1.8m (£1.4m) a year, plus undergo a medical in the capital.

The Lupi’s offer is believed set at a €3million (£2.4m) initial fee to take the 25-year-old on loan until the end of the season, whilst a purchase option to take a 50 per cent share in him come the summer is agreed at €6.5m (£5.4m).

Indications that a decision has been reached from the player came in his return to Cagliari yesterday evening from Milan, where it was seen he had been given permission to stay to negotiate with interested parties.
