Zappacosta has Roma medical

Chelsea right-back Davide Zappacosta is having a medical ahead of joining Roma on a season-long loan.

Zappacosta arrived in Rome late last night and this morning checked into Villa Stuart clinic for medical tests.

Once completed, the 27-year-old can sign his contract and be confirmed as a Roma player.

“I’m very excited, I’ve missed Italy so much and I’m happy about coming back, even more to Rome, which is near my home,” he told Tuttomercatoweb.

“I know the club and the fans, and I know how much passion they put in. The team are very young and I think we can do well.”
