The Black Cats looked set to land the Italian who had reportedly travelled to the north east to discuss personal terms.

But in a short statement the club said the deal for Santon - who made more than 90 appearances for Newcastle - was off.

The statement read: " Sunderland AFC will not be pursuing its interest in Inter Milan player Davide Santon, after negotiations between the two clubs failed to reach a positive conclusion."
