DUTCH INTERNATIONAL MIDFIELDER Georginio Wijnaldum signed a one-year loan deal with Roma on Friday after an unsettled season at French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

The 31-year-old joined PSG after five seasons with Liverpool but struggled to make an impact in the French capital.

He figured in just 18 starts in Ligue 1 and three in the Champions League.

Wijnaldum joins fellow new recruits Nemanja Matic and Paulo Dybala at Jose Mourinho’s team.

Roma finished sixth in Serie A last season and won the inaugural Europa Conference League.
