Newell’s Old Boys officially announced they have sold Ezequiel Ponce to Roma, though he’ll stay for another year.
The news was confirmed via the club’s Twitter account this evening.
Roma have bought the striker, but he will remain on loan in Argentina until December 2015.
The forward is still only 17 years old, but has already caught the attention of many top clubs, including Tottenham.
Ponce was in Rome last week to undergo a medical.
It’s believed his transfer fee is €5m for 60 per cent of his contract.
