De Sanctis lands at Roma

Goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis has touched down in Rome ahead of completing his transfer from Napoli to Roma.

The retired Italian international left the Azzurri’s training base at Dimaro this morning. He then caught a flight from Bolzano to Rome.

The 36-year-old will now undergo his medical before putting pen to paper on a contract with the Giallorossi.

De Sanctis will replace Maarten Stekelenburg in the capital goal after the latter was sold to Premiership side Fulham.

The former Pescara, Juventus and Udinese man has left the Azzurri after spending the last four years at the Stadio San Paolo.

Napoli have already brought in two new goalkeepers this summer in the form of Liverpool’s Pepe Reina and Rafael from Santos.
