Tall, commanding central defender Federico Fazio joined Serie A side Roma on loan until the end of the 2016-17 season in August, 2016, having initially moved to us from Sevilla in August, 2014.
After making 31 appearances in all competitions during his debut season for us, 2014-15, he played once more in 2015-16 in a League Cup tie with North London rivals Arsenal before returning to Sevilla on loan for the second half of the campaign, where he made six appearances in all competitions.
Argentine international Federico began his career in his homeland with Ferro Carril Oeste before joining Sevilla in 2007.
Capped three times at full international level, Federico went on to make 194 appearances for the La Liga side during his first stint with them and was also a key member of their Europa League winning team in 2013-14, beating Benfica on penalties in the final in Turin.
He was part of the Argentina sides that won the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in 2007 and Olympic gold in Beijing in 2008.
