Napoli finish move for Roma defender Mario Rui on initial loan

Napoli have acquired defender Mario Rui on an initial loan from Roma with an obligation to buy, the Italian clubs announced on Thursday.

Roma said that the initial year-long loan will cost Napoli €3.75 million, with another €5.5m set to be paid to make the move permanent if "certain sporting targets" are met.

Rui, 26, only moved to Roma last year from Empoli, though a cruciate ligament injury kept him sidelined until January.

He only made nine appearances in total last season.
