Morgan De Sanctis
1 January 2014
Youngsters set to leave Rome
have been Delvecchio’s first choice between the posts this season leaving second and third choice Lukasz Skorupski
and Tomas Svedkauskas
out of action. In order for the two young goalkeepers to develop they've been sent out on loan, Skorupski to Serie B club Modena and Svedkauskas to the Lega Pro Seconda Divisione (Italian 4th division) club Gavorrano. Both of them are expected to become first choice in their respective clubs and develop enough to be able to compete about being number one next season.
Roma have loaned another goalkeeper, Jon Kempin
, from Sporting Kansas City in order to cover up for Morgan De Sanctis in case of injury. The 20-year-old American is loaned with the option to buy for a fee of €1.5m.
17-year-old Tony Sanabria
was supposed to be part of the first team this season, but after half a season and only appearing 4 times as a substitute and scoring no goals the Paraguayan striker have completed a loan to Serie B side Brescia. Hopes are high for the former Barcelona-man and Brescia is said to be very happy to have captured him, even if its just for half a season. Sanabria have made 7 appearances for the Paraguayan U20's team.
