Former Man City star in talks to join Smalling at Roma

According to the Daily Mail, Jack Rodwell could be on his way to Roma. The former Man City and Blackburn player is currently a free agent and is in need of a new home.

The Daily Mail have explained how the midfielder will now undergo a series of fitness tests before the decision is made in his future.

Rodwell has been without a club since he left Blackburn earlier this year. Now it looks like an unexpected move to Italy will be on the cards.

Roma are seeking free agents to help with their injury crisis. The 28 year old could now be their next addition.

Chris Smalling

If Rodwell does pass fitness tests and negotiations are made, he will be joining Man United’s Chris Smalling.

Smalling went out on loan to the Italian side this year. Both players are known centre backs and Rodwell will have someone to guide him while he’s there.


Rodwell started his career with Everton. He then had spells at Man City, Sunderland and Blackburn.

He’s also got international cals to his name for England. However, he’s only ever played for these Premier League sides so a move to Italy will be a bug change.
