Roma loan out midfielder to Al-Ittihad

Marquinho - RomaSaudi Arabian giants Al-Ittihad have confirmed that they have sealed a one-year loan deal for Roma midfielder Marquinho.

The 28 year old Brazilian spent the second half of last season on loan at Hellas Verona and was deemed surplus to requirements by Roma coach Rudi Garcia for the new season.

Al-Ittihad announced the deal via social media on one day before the former Fluminense left-winger celebrated his 28th birthday.
