Roma captain Alessandro Florenzi has signed for LaLiga club Valencia on loan until the end of the season.

Florenzi to help Valencia push

Florenzi, who came through the ranks at Roma, has been a regular in their first team since 2012-13.

Having come into the side as a midfielder, Florenzi has regularly been deployed at right-back for both club and country, making 35 appearances so far for Italy.

However, the 28-year-old has fallen down the pecking order under Paulo Fonseca this term, featuring in 14 Serie A matches, making 12 starts.

Valencia have now confirmed they have reached an agreement with Roma for Florenzi to sign on loan for the rest of 2019-20.

Los Ches sit seventh in LaLiga, though are just four points behind third-placed Sevilla.
