Roma confirm Zappacosta arrival

Roma have confirmed that Davide Zappacosta will arrive this evening to complete his loan move from Chelsea.

Zappa to Roma, Santon to Mallorca

Chelsea right-back Davide Zappacosta has reportedly agreed to join Roma on loan, with Davide Santon set for Real Mallorca.

In turn, Di Marzio writes the Giallorossi are about to take Zappacosta on a dry loan for the season.

Chelsea continue Conte battle

Inter Coach Antonio Conte is still in a legal battle with Chelsea over his £9m severance package, with reports of another appeal.

The Italian tactician was sacked last summer to make way for Maurizio Sarri and the club claimed it was not due to pay any compensation.

That was because his text to striker Diego Costa confirming he was not part of the plans was considered to be damaging to the club and worthy of dismissal.

Conte contested that and won in May, with a Premier League tribunal ordering them to pay Conte £9m.
