Transfer News: AS Roma Sign Vasilis Torosidis | Zeman Buys Greek International

Greek giants Olympiacos have confirmed the January transfer of  full-back Vasilis Torosidis to Zdenek Zeman’s Roma.
Zeman will be slightly more relieved as they find some more defensive cover which as it stands they only have two recognized left-backs and also only one recognized right-back in Ivan Piris.

Torosidis can play at right and left back as well as hold the defensive midfield position.

The 27-year-old was on his way to Fulham until the Giallorossi hijacked the deal for the international full-back.

Torosidis, who has cost the club a nominal fee as he only had six months left on his contract, underwent his medical in the Italian capital on Tuesday.

The Greek international has made 54 caps at international level and will be an experienced addition to the team of Roma.
