The Black Cats had reportedly agreed a £4million fee to sign the Inter Milan defender, who made 82 league appearances for Newcastle during a four-year spell on Tyneside.

The Italy international featured on 12 occasions for Inter during the 2015-16 campaign, helping the Nerazzurri to a fourth-place finish in Serie A, but Sunderland have now revealed that talks have broken down over a potential move for Santon, and they will not be pursuing their interest any further.

A club statement read: “Sunderland AFC will not be pursuing its interest in Inter Milan player Davide Santon, after negotiations between the two clubs failed to reach a positive conclusion.”

Sam Allardyce’s side have yet to bring in any new recruits this summer, although they have let six first-team players leave the squad after they narrowly avoided relegation from the Premier League last season.
