Roma have signed Portugal defender Abel Xavier.
The former Liverpool and Everton full back has been on trial at Stadio Olimpico
Roma boss Luigi Delneri has been suitably impressed with the flamboyant stopper, and has handed him a contract with the Serie A side.
Former Galatasaray man Xavier has been without a club since leaving German side Hannover, and had been close to a return to England.
Portuguese defender Abel Xavier has stressed that his aim is to lead Roma to a place in next season's UEFA Champions League.
The capital club have had a turbulent time this term, but still sit fifth and are well placed to mount a late-season charge.
Xavier is determined to keep Roma in the top bracket in Europe and deliver success to the Roman giants.
