Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has travelled to Italy to finalise a loan move to Serie A side Roma, says boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Premier League club have reportedly agreed a season-long deal with Roma paying a fee of £2.7m.
Smalling made 34 appearances last season but is now on the fringes of the squad, with fellow England defender Harry Maguire – an £80m summer signing – and Sweden international Victor Lindelof established as the first-choice centre-back partnership.
Solskjaer said Marcos Rojo, who has been linked with AC Milan, Marseille and Monaco, is “staying definitely”, along with fellow centre-backs Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe.
Solskjaer believes he has a less squad in numbers but one that is strong to have coverage in all positions
