Cassano to leave Sampdoria

Updated: 

Former Italy international Antonio Cassano is leaving Sampdoria after his contract was terminated by mutual consent.

Cassano, 34, is yet to play a game this season and his departure from the Serie A club has been expected.

Sampdoria confirmed on Wednesday they had agreed a termination, although Cassano will be allowed to continue training with their youth team.

Cassano joined the club for a third time in August 2015, but scored just two league goals in 24 matches last season.
