Chelsea defender, Davide Zappacosta has admitted that he is ‘home’ after arriving in Italy on Tuesday to seal a loan move to Roma.
New Blues boss, Frank Lampard has deemed the 27-year-old surplus to requirement this season. Zappacosta is now set to stay in Serie A until June 2020 at least.
He will undergo a medical on Wednesday before finalising the terms of his season-long loan.
Zappacosta was all smiles as he was met by supporters at Fiumicino Airport and he briefly addressed the media to discuss the move.
“I am very happy, I missed Italy so much. I’m glad to be back here, Rome feels like my home because I live nearby.
“I’m very happy. I know [Gianluca] Petrachi well and I know how much passion he puts into his work.
“I know the Roma supporters are passionate – Roma is a young team and I think we can do well,” he said, according to ASRomaPress.
