Roma claim Wolfsburg “changed the terms” of their deal for Simon Kjaer, so will not complete the transfer yet.
The defender flew in for his medical this week and declared he was happy to join the Giallorossi.
However, when Wolfsburg sent over the contracts, they were for a loan deal with mandatory buy-out clause rather than an option to buy at the end of the season.
“We had an agreement with Wolfsburg for a loan with option to buy, then they changed the terms and we thought it opportune not to ratify the contract,” explained general manager Claudio Fenucci.
“We consider the player to be of good quality and if Wolfsburg go back to the original contractual terms, then we are ready to conclude the transfer.”
