Crotone: ‘Tumminello said yes’

Roma youth team striker Marco Tumminello has accepted a loan move to Crotone, confirmed director of sport Beppe Ursino.

The 18-year-old Sicilian joined the Giallorossi youth academy in November 2012 and was upgraded to the senior squad this summer.

Last season he scored 30 goals in 32 competitive games for the Roma Primavera side.

He had also been linked with Benevento and Cagliari, but is heading to Calabria.

“The meeting went well, the lad accepted the destination,” Crotone director Ursino told Pagine Romaniste.

“We await tomorrow to work out the details with Roma.”
