AS Roma have agreed a €14.4m move for striker Seydou Doumbia from CSKA Moscow, the Russian club confirmed on their official website on Saturday.

Roma have also confirmed that a deal has been agreed for the 27-year-old Doumbia, who should now be tied down to Moscow till 2016.

“The Ivorian striker Seydou Doumbia made a permanent switch to AS Roma today. PFC CSKA thanks Seydou for his contribution in the successes of the team in the past years and wishes all the best in his future career!” CSKA Moscow said.

Doumbia, however, has yet to agree personal terms with Roma as he is currently on international duty with Ivory Coast at the Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.

The Ivorian is best known for the three goals he scored against Manchester City in their two Champions League encounters this season.
