Wilhelmsson: I want to stay at Roma

The 27-year-old has been on-loan at Roma from French Ligue 1 side Nantes, who have just been relegated.

He told Aftonbladet: “I do not want to go back to Nantes – I want to stay at Roma.

“Everything here has been great, I have managed to experience a lot very, very early on and I have also improved my game.

“Negotiations are underway, and there are other options and interested clubs for sure, but I want to stay with Roma.

“At the same time, though, I don’t want to wait too long, but as long as everybody is happy we should reach a deal really soon.”
