Sunderland forward Emanuele Giaccherini has returned to Italy to join Bologna on loan for the rest of the season.
Italy international Giaccherini, 30, has not featured for the Black Cats this season.
He moved to Sunderland from Juventus for £6.5m when Paolo Di Canio was in charge in July 2013 after agreeing a four-year contract.
Giaccherini has managed just 32 Premier League appearances in two years, scoring four goals.
Bologna are seeking their first win of the season after losing the first two games of the season since winning promotion to Serie A.
