Serie A giants Roma have confirmed the signing of Turkish defender Meret Cetin.

In an official statement released by the club, they said:  "AS Roma SpA announces that it has acquired outright the sports performance rights of the player Yıldırım Mert Çetin, from Gençlerbirliği Spor Kulübü Derneği, against a fixed fee of 3 million euro. 

"Furthermore, in the event of a future transfer of the Footballer, AS Roma will recognize the Turkish club an amount equal to 10% of the sale price in excess of 5 million euros. A contract was signed with the footballer until 30 June 2024."

Despite this, the giallorossi are still after a central defender as a move for Dejan Lovren has fell through.
