The Argentinian made 32 starts for Spurs

Now the Argentinian international has made a permanent move to Serie A.

Fazio joined Spurs from Sevilla in 2014 but was sent off on his Premier League debut in a 4-1 loss to Manchester City.

A month later he was red carded again in a Europa League tie with Asteras T.

He never really established himself in the Tottenham set-up and made just one Capital Cup appearance under Mauricio Pochettino.

Fazio returned for a loan spell at Sevilla before joining Roma on a season-long loan deal last August..

Tottenham said in a statement: “We have reached agreement with AS Roma for the permanent transfer of Federico Fazio.

“Federico joined us in August 2014 from Sevilla and went on to make 32 appearances in a Spurs shirt before returning to spend half of the 2015-16 season on loan with the Spanish side.
