Nigeria forward Simeon Nwankwo has joined newly-promoted Serie A club Salernitana on loan from Crotone.
Nwankwo suffered relegation from the Serie A with Crotone at the end of last season, but is now set for a second straight season in the division, having penned a one-year loan contract with the Salernitana on Thursday.
Salernitana will have an option to make the move permanent for a fee of €6m, but that will become an obligation if certain conditions are met.
According to sources in Italy, Crotone will get a 10 per cent cut of any future transfer fee.
Nwankwo, 29, scored 20 goals in 38 Serie A appearances for the Sharks last season.
