Giaccherini swaps Sunderland for Napoli

Sunderland and Italy winger Emanuele Giaccherini has joined Napoli on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Giaccherini, 31, joined the Black Cats in 2013 from Juventus for £6.5m but, after an impressive first season, he struggled to make an impact.

He played 43 times in total for the club, scoring five goals, but spent last season on loan at Serie A Bologna.

The Italian has 29 international caps and scored the Azzurri’s opening goal of Euro 2016 against Belgium.

His departure won’t shed too many tears from Black Cats fans but they will ask themselves after his performances for Italy where was that player for the duration of his time at Wearside. Once again it seems as Sunderland has acted as a career graveyard for the Italian international.
