Olympiacos midfielder Vasilis Torosidis moves close to joining Roma after the two clubs agreed a fee for the Greek.

Olympiacos midfielder Vasilis Torosidis has rejected an approach from Fulham to join Roma, according to the player's agent George Kazianis.

The 27-year-old had been tipped to join the Premier League outfit this month, but Roma have confirmed that a deal is now in place.

"Yes, we were about to sign the contract with Fulham but Roma have made a better offer at the last minute," Kazianis told Calciomercato.

A statement from the Italian club said: "Vasilis Torosidis is speaking to Roma's directors after the club reached an agreement in principle with Olympiakos. The transfer is subject to the player agreeing contract terms and passing a medical."

The Greek midfielder has spent his entire career in his home country.
