Roma decide against Rodwell deal?

Roma have reportedly rejected the opportunity to sign former Manchester City and England midfielder Jack Rodwell.

Roma have been faced with a serious injury crisis, which has left Jordan Veretout as their only fit and recognised central midfielder.

The Giallorossi then brought in Rodwell, plus ex-Empoli man Marcel Buchel, with a view to signing one in a bid to ease their problems.

However, Gianluca Di Marzio claims defender Gianluca Mancini impressed Coach Paulo Fonseca in the Lupi's engine room against Milan on Sunday.

Therefore, the club would have passed up both free agents, preferring to stick with Mancini in the meantime.

Rodwell had been unattached following his release from Blackburn Rovers at the end of last season.

Buchel, meanwhile, spent the previous campaign on loan at Verona, before being released by Empoli.
