Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko celebrates scoring

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has joined Serie A side Roma on a season-long loan. The Italian club have paid an initial £2.9m, with a further £7.9m due if the move is made permanent. “I came here to win titles with Roma,” Dzeko said. “I can only promise one thing and that is that I will give my best for this club in every game.” The 29-year-old Bosnia-Hercegovina international joined City from Wolfsburg in January 2011 for £27m. He had signed a new four-year contract at Etihad Stadium last summer. However, manager Manuel Pellegrini recently admitted Dzeko was likely to leave following the £49m capture of Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling. Dzeko was City’s leading scorer with 15 goals in 2012-13 and hit 26 more in all competitions as they won the Premier League the following season, but he managed only six goals in 32 appearances last season.
