Uruguay striker Cavani signs for Napoli

Edinson Cavani is set to join Napoli when he returns to Italy from his post-World Cup break in Uruguay.
Italian media reports on Thursday said the 23-year-old Cavani has agreed to a one-year loan deal with Napoli, with the club having the option to sign him permanently for (EURO)16 million ($20 million) at the end of the season.
Cavani has been with Palermo since 2007 and has scored 34 goals in 109 games.
Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini told Italian radio: "An accord has been reached and Napoli will improve a lot with Cavani."
Cavani was part of the Uruguay team that finished fourth at the World Cup in South Africa. He started six of the seven matches and scored once, in the third-place playoff.
