Marquinho: Completed permanent Roma switch

The 25-year-old Brazilian joined the Stadio Olympico club on a six-month loan deal during the January transfer window and impressed immensely.

Marquinho, who is a versatile attacker who can also play wing-back, scored three goals during his spell with the Giallorossi.

The capital club have agreed a fee with his employers for his services with Roma set to pay the player's transfer fee in two parts, with around £1.65million this summer and the rest to be paid next summer.

The Brazilian started his professional career at Palmeiras and also wore the colours of Botafogo and Figueirense before joining Fluminense in 2009.
