Osvaldo completes Roma move

Argentina striker Pablo Osvaldo has completed his move to Roma from Espanyol. Osvaldo underwent a medical this morning in the Italian capital before signing a four-year contract with I Giallorossi.

Osvaldo joins the Serie A outfit in a reported €18m (£15.9m) transfer deal from Espanyol. "I am very happy to be here," said Osvaldo. "I have chosen Roma because it is a great club. For me it is an honour to play alongside (Roma captain Francesco) Totti."

Osvaldo has plenty of experience in Serie A having played for Atalanta, Fiorentina, Lecce and Bologna before joining Espanyol in 2010. He scored 20 goals in 44 appearances for the Barcelona club.
