Roma complete €10 million transfer of Marco Borriello from AC Milan - report

Serie A club set to announce permanent move for Italian striker as they have reached a deal with his ex-team to ensure he remains in the capital
Roma will keep Marco Borriello after agreeing to pay AC Milan a €10 million transfer fee which was agreed upon when signing the previous loan deal last year.

The 29-year-old moved to the Eternal City for one season with Roma holding an option to sign him permanently for €10m.

Sky Sport Italia reports that the capital city club have exercised the option to make the deal permanent and will announce the move officially at a later stage.

The striker scored 11 goals in 34 Serie A games last term as his side finished sixth, allowing them to qualify for the Europa League play-off round.

News of Borriello's permanent deal comes just hours after Barcelona said they were considering an offer from the Italian club for their 20-year-old striker Bojan Krkic.
