Bayer director Rudi Völler: “We’re working with Roma on Jedvaj”

Bayer LeverkusenLever sporting director, Rudi Völler, who used to manage Roma, spoke to Bild regarding the negotiations with on-loan defender Tin Jedvaj, who Roma sent to the German club on a two year loan with the right to purchase. Bayer would like to conclude a deal for the young Croatian during this month’s transfer window, but it appears the negotiations have been difficult, here are his words:

“Roma’s demand for €10 million (for Jedvaj) represents an unrealistic sum. We are dealing with them, who we’ve always had a good rapport with. But there’s currently no news on Jedvaj. We now need to find a reasonable solution.”
