According to the latest reports from Rome, 18-year-old forward Keita will be sent to the stands this afternoon.

It is punishment for an alleged row with one of his teammates in the locker room following yesterday’s training session, thought to be Stefan Radu.

Coach Vladimir Petkovic has not released the squad list for this game.

Keita grew up in the Barcelona youth academy and has repeatedly been linked with a Premier League move in recent months, as Liverpool are thought to be leading the race. 

He was released by Barca in part due to locker room issues.
