The 31-year-old winger joined the Black Cats from Juventus in July 2013 but failed to cement a first-team place at the Stadium of Light and returned to Italy on a season-long loan with Bologna for the 2015-16 campaign.

His impressive performances with the northern outfit – and subsequently with Italy at Euro 2016 – have convinced last year’s Scudetto runners-up Napoli to recruit him for a reported £2million fee.

Sunderland confirmed the news on their website on Saturday and he leaves after making 43 appearances for the club, scoring five goals.
