Spain calling for Santon?

Roma full-back Davide Santon is reportedly in talks to join Spanish side Real Sociedad.

According to Sportitalia’s Alfredo Pedulla, the possibility of a move to La Real has come about after an agreement could not be reached with La Liga new boys Real Mallorca.

Santon is considered expendable for Roma after they signed Leonardo Spinazzola to bolster their wide defensive options.

The 28-year-old moved to the Olimpico as part of the exchange deal that took Radja Nainggolan to Inter last summer.
