Roma's Mario Rui seals Napoli loan

Updated: 

Roma have confirmed that Mario Rui has completed a season-long loan switch to Napoli.

The 26-year-old has finalised his move after passing a medical with Maurizio Sarri's side.

Napoli will pay EUR3.75million for the initial deal and will be obliged to sign him outright for a further EUR5.5m fee if "certain sporting targets" are met, Roma said.

Mario Rui joined from Empoli last year but a cruciate ligament injury meant he was unable to make his debut until January in a 4-0 Coppa Italia win over Sampdoria.

He made a total of nine appearances in 2016-17.
