Jack Rodwell heading for Roma

Free agent Jack Rodwell is set to sign for AS Roma, pending a medical, according to multiple reports across Italy.

Il Corriere dello Sport suggested that the former Sunderland man was in the stands for Thursday evening’s Europa League encounter versus Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Giallorossi are suffering with an extreme injury crisis and are being forced to deploy players out of position in order to cover the gaps.

The 28-year-old made 21 appearances for Blackburn Rovers in the Championship last term, and will join fellow Englishman Chris Smalling at Roma.
