Diego Llorente completes AS Roma loan

Defender joins Serie A side.

Leeds United defender Diego Llorente has today joined Italian side AS Roma on loan until the end of the 2022/23 season, with a view to a permanent deal.

The 29-year-old has made a total of 59 appearances for the Whites since joining from Real Sociedad in the summer of 2020, scoring four goals.

He helped Leeds finish ninth in his first campaign, whilst last season helped the club retain Premier League status for a second season.

This term he has been restricted to just 13 appearances in all competitions, finding himself behind Liam Cooper, Robin Koch and new recruit Max Wober in the defensive pecking order.

We wish Diego all the best during his time at the Stadio Olimpico.
