Roma have finalized the signing of Stuttgart defender Antonio Rudiger, according to reports.

The German international will link up with the Capital outfit on an initial season-long loan deal.

It is thought that the Giallorossi have the option of making the move permanent for £6m at the end of the 2015/16 campaign.

"I'm absolutely delighted to be able to wear the Roma jersey. I've come here to win titles, to win the Scudetto. I would like to thank all the Roma fans and promise them that I will give everything for this club," Rudiger told the club's official website.

Rudiger made 35 appearances for Stuttgart in all competitions last term.
