Official: Roma deal for Corlu

Roma have a deal for Brondby creative midfielder Rezan Corlu, announced the Danish club. “It was difficult to say no to Roma.”

Brondby released a statement via their official website and Twitter account this evening confirming they had agreed a transfer.

“Naturally it was difficult to say goodbye to Brondby, as I have played here since I was four years old,” Corlu told the club site.

“But it was difficult to say no to an offer from Roma. After my knee injury, I see this opportunity in Italy as a fresh start.”

The trequartista turns 20 next week and came up through the Brondby youth academy.

He has four caps for Denmark at Under-20 level and is out of contract in December 2017.

It’s believed he signed the contract today and is expected to arrive for a minimal fee.
