share on:

Ivory Coast striker Seydou Doumbia has joined FC Basel on a season-long loan from Roma, the Serie A side has confirmed.

The 28-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Newcastle, but made just three substitute appearances as the Magpies were relegated from the Premier League.

Doumbia has made only six starts for the Giallorossi since joining from CSKA Moscow in January 2015 and will now move temporarily to reigning Swiss Super League champions Basel.

A statement on Roma’s official website read: “AS Roma can confirm that it has reached an agreement with Swiss club FC Basel 1893 for the loan of forward Seydou Doumbia for the duration of the 2016-17 season.”
