Federico Fazio has signed a new two-year contract with Roma, keeping him at the club until 2021.
The Argentine defender’s deal had been due to expire next summer, but he has now penned a one-year extension, which will take him into his fourth and fifth seasons with the club.
“It’s my second renewal with the club and I am incredibly pleased,” Fazio told Roma’s official website.
“From the very first day here I have felt that the club has confidence in me, something that is important to every player.
“I’ve sensed that belief from everyone who works at Trigoria – a place I want to stay at for the long-term.”
It is believed that Fazio’s €2.5m salary will be spread over the two years, making this an economically smart move from Roma.
To date, Fazio has made 135 appearances for Roma since joining on an initial loan deal from Tottenham in 2016. The 32-year-old has scored 11 goals in that time.
