Official: Roma sign Cengiz Under

Roma have officially signed Cengiz Under from Istanbul Basaksehir for €13.4m plus bonuses. “I’m delighted to be here and aim to earn a regular starting spot as quickly as possible.”

The attacking midfielder flew in on Friday evening – his 20th birthday – and passed his medical, putting pen to paper on a five-year contract this morning.

“I'm delighted to be here and very excited about meeting the fans. My aim is to earn myself a regular starting berth as quickly as possible.”

The Giallorossi released a statement confirming the initial fee is €13.4m, but “depending on the achievement of certain performance targets, on the part of both the player and the club, the Giallorossi could pay up to an additional €1.5m in bonuses.

“The Turkey international has signed a five-year contract with Roma that runs until 30 June 2022.”

Cengiz already has two goals in four senior caps for Turkey and has chosen the Number 17 jersey at Roma.

“We are extremely happy with the arrival of Cengiz, a player with great technical ability,” said sporting director Monchi.

“We are confident he will quickly adjust to his new surroundings and his quality and talent will be a valuable addition to our squad.”
