Spurs allow Fazio to leave
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has allowed the 30-year-old Argentina international Federico Fazio to join Roma on a permanent basis.
Fazio spent last season on loan at the Serie A outfit and impressed during his time in the Italian capital.
He also made four appearances for Sevilla during a spell on loan at the La Liga side in the second half of the 2015/16 campaign.
Fazio joined Spurs from Sevilla in the summer of 2014 but he struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League and featured in only 20 top-flight matches for the club.
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.
"We wish Federico all the best for the future."
Meanwhile, the former Spurs striker Teddy Sheringham has been appointed as head coach of Indian Super League side Atletico de Kolkata.
The 51-year-old, who also starred for Manchester United and Nottingham Forest during his playing career, endured a disappointing spell in charge of Stevenage before parting company with the League Two club in February 2016.
