Roma have secured Fernando Gago from Real Madrid on loan with an option to buy worth €6.5m.
The Argentine had also been of interest to Milan and Palermo, among others, but the Giallorossi completed the move just minutes before the transfer deadline at 18.00 UK time.
Gago walked into the hotel where the clubs have their stalls this evening and put pen to paper.
Real Madrid have agreed to loan the midfielder to Roma with an option to buy for €6.5m at the end of the season.
Roma also announced they had loaned Matteo Brighi to Atalanta.
