The 21-year-old central midfielder has spent much of the season out injured and has found it difficult to make the first team as a result.

Uçan is currently on a two-year loan at AS Roma from Fenerbahçe and the Serie A outfit have a clause to make the deal permanent at the end of the current agreement.

The highly rated Turkish international is expected to work on his fitness and conditioning over the international break.

The former Bucaspor player has made three appearances for Roma since joining in the summer.

Roma are currently second in Serie A and will take on Napoli next at home.
