Roma sign Marash Kumbulla in a cash-plus-players deal

Roma have completed the signing of Hellas Verona centre-back Marash Kumbulla on an initial two-year loan.

As part of the deal, Mert Cetin, Matteo Cancellieri and Aboudramane Diaby have gone the other way, also on two-year loans.

When all the costs are weighed up against each other, Roma are paying a €2m fee.

All four loan deals have conditions that could make them permanent. If they do all become permanent, Roma will pay a net fee of €13.5m.

Kumbulla, 20, is one of Serie A’s most promising defenders and his performances last season led to interest from Juventus, Inter and Lazio.

Roma made a sudden swoop for the Albanian international this week though, and have now secured him.

If Kumbulla’s loan move does become a permanent deal, his contract will run until 30 June 2025.

Kumbulla will wear the number 24 shirt at Roma.
