Having had his name announced as being subbed off against Palace, the home fans jeered their former captain, which caused him to appear to swear at them and goad them before storming down the tunnel.

The 27-year-old could be a decent signing for the Serie A giants, with RSI Sport suggesting he’s already preparing for his move by looking for a new home.
