Viviani’s agent speaks after Leeds snub

Giovanni Ferro, the agent of Federico Viviani, spoke to LaRoma24 after his client opted to remain at Latina for another season instead of spending a season abroad with Leeds:

The negotiations with Leeds are complicated: are you close to an agreement with Latina?
“I confirm that: Viviani made a choice from the heart not to go to Leeds next year. He’ll play with Latina.”

What is the formula of the operation?
“t will be a one-year loan with the right of redemption in favor of Latina.”

So this close soon? Also, Roma may lose Viviani permanently?
“It will close in the next few days but I still don’t know if a buy-back clause will be inserted into the contract in Roma’s favor.”
