Vermaelen had one tackle, one interception, one foul, and drew a foul on Saturday in a 4-0 victory over Udinese.

Vermaelen settled in nicely with his former Arsenal teammate Wojciech Szczesny in goal behind him. Their communication served the defense well, as Udinese was able to muster only one shot on target. He will have to watch his teammates on Tuesday against Porto, however, as he was sent off in the first leg of their Champions League qualifier.

August 8, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vermaelen signed a season-long loan with Roma with an option for a permanent transfer at the end of the current agreement, ESPN FC reports.

Vermaelen has had a disaster of a stint with the Catalans barely cracking the starting squad on rare occasions. The 30-year-old defender will be hoping to revive his career with the Serie A side.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vermaelen made four starts for Belgium during Euro 2016, registering three clean sheets, six tackles and receiving two yellow cards on eight fouls. He takes his international record to 57 caps and one goal. Belgium suffered a shocking 3-1 upset defeat at the hands of Wales and were knocked out of the tournament in the quarterfinals.

Vermaelen failed to make any impression at Barca last season and struggled finding regular playing time. The 30-year-old defender didn't boast high fantasy upside off the bench finishing the season with one goal, six clean sheets and seven tackles in 10 La Liga appearances (six starts).

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vermaelen will serve a one-match ban for card accumulation Friday against Wales.

Vermaelen's absence will be multiplied by news that Jan Vertonghen (ankle) has been ruled out as well. Fantasy owners can look to Jordan Lukaku as the potential replacement along the Belgium back line.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vermaelen made five interceptions and pitched in on a clean sheet in Wednesday's 1-0 win over Sweden.

Belgium took the play to Sweden for most of the game, limiting the amount of work Vermaelen and the rest of the back line had to do defensively. He has been a key member of a very strong unit that hasn't been scored upon since the first game of the tournament and will face one of the weaker sides remaining in the tournament in Sunday's match versus Hungary.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vermaelen won four tackles, made five interceptions and helped keep a clean sheet during Saturday's 3-0 win over Ireland.

Vermaelen was a forgotten man after seeing little playing time at the club level over the last couple of seasons, but he caught the eye with a dominant defensive showing to help his side bounce back from a poor opening match. He is entrenched as a starter in the center of defense for the Red Devils and will look to maintain his current form in Wednesday's match versus Sweden.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vermaelen was dealing with a calf issue, but is in Belgium's starting squad for their match against Italy on Monday.

Vermaelen hasn't had much success at the club level since signing with Barcelona two years ago. However, he continues to draw playing time with Belgium and has a favorable matchup against the defensive Italian team in this game.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vermaelen has elected to have surgery on his injured hamstring, and he will miss the rest of the season, Marca reports.

Vermaelen has yet to feature for Barcelona after transferring from Arsenal this past summer, and it's clear that his hamstring issue is far more serious than initially believed.
