Toni hoping to stay with AS Roma

BY foxsports • January 16, 2010

Italy striker Luca Toni says he wants to make his move to AS Roma permanent once he completes his six-month loan.

The World Cup winner told Saturday's La Gazzetta dello Sport that "I will do all I can to stay at Roma."

Toni is on loan from German club Bayern Munich until the end of the season after falling out with coach Louis Van Gaal and being relegated to the bench. He hopes increased playing time in Italy will help him win back a place in the Italy squad.

The 32-year-old Toni scored twice for Italy at the 2006 World Cup, but has not played for Marcello Lippi's side since last year's Confederations Cup.
