Jack Rodwell Set for Roma Medical

Jack Rodwell will undergo a medical at Roma on Friday ahead of a proposed free transfer to the Serie A club, according to Sky in Italy.

The former Everton, Manchester City and Sunderland midfielder is a free agent since being released by Blackburn Rovers in June, after making 23 appearances and scoring one goal for the Championship club.

Rodwell, who has not played a competitive game since Rovers’ 2-1 defeat to Norwich on April 27th, sat the first part of his medical on Thursday and will undergo a series of tests on Friday to determine his fitness.

The 28-year-old was at the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday night to attend the Serie A side’s 1-1 draw against Borussia Monchengladbach in the Europa League.

Injury-plagued Roma are keen to bolster their midfield options after losing Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Bryan Cristante, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Amadou Diawara inside the first two months of their season.
