Yanga-Mbiwa, 25, arrived at Rome's Fiumicino Airport on Monday and underwent a medical before completing his Serie A switch.

"I am happy, forza Roma," Yanga-Mbiwa is quoted as saying by the Italian press.

The France international has been looking to leave the Magpies this summer after finding himself down the pecking order under manager Alan Pardew.

Yanga-Mbiwa moved to St James' Park in January 2013 from Ligue 1 side Montpellier and is under contract for another four years.

A move to Roma, who won their Serie A opener 2-0 against Fiorentina on Saturday, will allow the defender to play Champions League football.

Roma finished runners-up in Italy's top flight last season and will face Manchester City, Bayern Munich and CSKA Moscow in the group stages of Europe's elite club competition.
