Radja Nainggolan has signed a new deal with Roma, keeping him at the club until June 2020, it was announced on Thursday evening.
There was no fanfare in announcing the new contract – done so through the release of the Serie A side’s annual financial results statement – after the midfielder was linked to a Chelsea move during the summer.
The Belgium international was under contract with the Giallorossi until June 2018.
As per the statement, Nainggolan is now tied to Roma until June 30 2020.
Nainggolan was heavily linked with a move to Premier League side Chelsea over the summer but in the end he stayed with the club and has now committed his long term future to the side.
So far this season Roma have won four, drawn one and lost two of their opening seven matches in Serie A and they sit in third in the table, behind champions Juventus and Napoli.
Leandro Castan also extended his contract to June 2019, despite currently being on loan at Torino.
