Roma now own former Chelsea striker Fabio Borini outright after buying the remaining 50 per cent of the player.

Roma formerly part-owned him with Serie A rivals Parma but an offer of 4.9 million euros (£3.95million) in a sealed envelope bid proved enough to ensure that Borini would stay at the Stadio Olimpico.

There had been media speculation in Italy and England that the ex-Swansea City player could link up again with former coach Brendan Rodgers, who is now in charge at Liverpool.

Borini, a member of the Italian squad at the European Championship, spent last season on loan at Roma, scoring nine times in 24 Serie A appearances.
