Paolo Cannavaro completes Sassuolo loan move

Napoli defender Paolo Cannavaro joins Sassuolo on loan for the rest of the season.

Napoli defender Paolo Cannavaro has joined Sassuolo on loan for the rest of the season.

The 32-year-old has struggled to break into Rafael Benitez's team, and while he says that it was a tough choice to move away from Naples, he is delighted with the chance to prove himself at the Serie A strugglers.

"Napoli will always be in my heart," he told Radio Kiss Kiss. "It's going to be hard to deal with that when I'm at Sassuolo.

"But I want to thank the Neroverdi for this opportunity."

Sassuolo are currently 18th in the Serie A table.
