Simone Loria has completed his dream move from Siena to Roma after a complex deal involving five players was struck between the two sides.
Loria had a superb season last term as Siena secured a comfortable mid-table finish and he caught the eye of the Giallorossi, who are looking for defensive cover to replace Matteo Ferrari.
Despite reported interest from hometown club Juventus, the 31-year-old revealed that his heart was set on wearing the Roma shirt.
After several afternoons of negotiations, Siena and Roma have agreed a deal that sees Loria and Brazilian goalkeeping prospect Arthur Gusmao join the capital club.
The full details of the transfer haven't been made public, but Siena now have full rights to Azzurrini midfielder Daniele Galloppa, who impressed at the Toulon Tournament this summer.
Reserve goalkeeper Gianluca Curci also arrives at the Montepaschi Arena in a co-ownership agreement and Ghanaian midfielder Ahmed Barusso makes the trip to Tuscany on loan.
