ROME - Roma defender Vasilis Torosidis has signed a new three-year deal with the Serie A club, keeping him at the Stadio Olimpico until 2017.

The 29-year-old Torosidis said Wednesday that "I'm staying at Roma because it's a big club with big targets and I want to win something with this team."

Torosidis, who had one year left on his previous contract, signed from Olympiakos in January 2013.

After a great start to last season, Roma eventually finished second, 17 points behind defending champion Juventus.

Torosidis says "we have a strong squad, with so many top-level players. We all want to win the title, but it will be a difficult season."

Torosidis played in all four of Greece's matches at the World Cup.
