Destro, who spent the second half of last season on loan at AC Milan, was among those under consideration by Canaries boss Alex Neil in the manager's attempts to strengthen his squad before the end of the transfer window.

Destro is reported to be moving for an initial one million euro (around £700,000) loan fee, with Bologna obliged to make the deal permanent in 12 months time by paying a further nine million euros (£6.3m).

"Today my new adventure begins at Bologna," said Destro on Twitter..

"I will give it my all to repay your faith! I'm comiiiiiing! #weareone #goals #assists "

Last week, Neil had revealed Destro was on Norwich's list of targets.

"There are ongoing negotiations with quite a few players, not just players but clubs and agents and different things like that, but yes, he is a player who has been discussed," he said.

Norwich City manager Alex Neil has signed a new and improved deal at the newly promoted club.

Neil, who replaced Neil Adams as manager last year, led the Norfolk club to the Premier League thanks to a play-off final win over Middlesbrough.

I'm delighted to sign a new contract with Norwich City.

Both parties were taking a chance when I was appointed but it's worked out very well for all involved, and I'm happy this has been sorted before the season gets underway.

I've really enjoyed my five months at the Club, hopefully it is just the beginning as we now look forward to playing in the Barclays Premier League.

– Alex Neil
