He joins Jose Mourinho at AS Roma, and a replacement could be imminent.

It has been widely reported that Jose Sa will be the man coming in.

He has already been replaced at Olympiacos by Tomas Vaclik.

The former Wolves goalkeeper was forced to retire after being diagnosed with leukaemia.

Fans have been reacting to Ikeme’s comment, with many praising him for giving his blessing:
