Okaka Joins Bologna On Loan

Roma youngster Stefano Chuka Okaka has joined newly promoted Bologna on a season-long loan.

Okaka, who was born in Umbria to Nigerian parents, is highly rated in the peninsula, and last week helped Italy Under-19s to second place in the European Championships.

The 18-year-old joined the Roma youth system from Cittadella in 2004, and spent last season on-loan at Serie B side Modena, scoring seven goals.

Having returned back to Roma, Okaka has now been loaned out again, this time to newly promoted Serie A side Bologna.

“I’m happy to be going to Bologna,” Okaka told Tuttomercatoweb.

“I hope that I can do well there. I didn’t expect to stay on at Roma. I’m happy to renew my contract and be sent on loan, and Bologna is the most pleasing destination.”

Bologna have been quite prominent in the summer transfer market so far, capturing the likes of Corinthians hardman Coelho, Lazio’s Gaby Mudingayi, and Sampdoria duo Cristian Zenoni and Sergio Volpi. They have a baptism of fire though on their return to the top-flight, as they travel to AC Milan for their fist game of the season.

“Serie A is like that,” Okaka added.

“Playing Juventus, Inter or Fiorentina would have been the same because the giants are all at the same level.”
