Italian club, AS Roma, have reportedly agreed with Manchester United to take Chris Smalling on loan for the rest of the season.

According to Bleacher Report, Roma will pay United £2.7 million for the defender.

Sky Sports Italia reports that Smalling has agreed to the deal and was on his way to Rome for medical on Friday. 

The England international had reportedly received interests from a number of clubs in Serie A.

Roma have been looking to sign a defender to add to their squad since Konstantinos Manolas left for Napoli. Their attempt to replace him with Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren failed, after talks broke down with the European champions,  prompting them to shift attention to Smalling.

The former Fulham player has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford under coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.

The arrival of Harry Maguire from Leicester City for a world-record fee for a defender has limited his opportunities, with Solskjaer preferring Victor Lindelof and Maguire partnership.

Fellow Premier League side, Everton, have had a bid rejected for the centre-back earlier in the summer.
