Sunderland and Napoli have agreed a £2 million fee for the permanent transfer of Emanuele Giaccherini.

The midfielder signed for the Black Cats from Juventus in 2013 but failed to have much of an impact, joining Bologna on loan for the entirety of last season.

With just one year left on his contract, Sky Sports report Sunderland have opted to cash in and allow Giaccherini to return to Serie A permanently, having started only 18 Premier League games during his stay at the Stadium of Light.

Giaccherini was a key part of Italy's midfield at Euro 2016, playing in four of their five games and scoring once as they reached the quarter-final stage.

Bologna ruin Napoli winning streak

Napoli's 18-game unbeaten streak in all competitions came to an end after losing 3-2 at Bologna in a nail-biting contest at the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara.

Mattia Destro's brace either side of Luca Rossettini's first-half goal looked to have put the game to bed but Gonzalo Higuain scored two goals in the final three minutes of normal time to set up a tense finish.

However the hosts held on to move up to 15th while Napoli missed the opportunity to leapfrog Inter Milan at the top of the Serie A table.
