Alfred Duncan joins Sassuolo on a season-long loan from Sampdoria

Sassuolo have won the race for Ghana midfielder Alfred Duncan.

The club beat competition from fellow Serie A side Bologna to seal a loan agreement for the 22-year-old Sampdoria midfielder.

Duncan joined Sampdoria on a permanent basis from Inter Milan in January this year which cost the club €2.6 million, making 26 appearances and scoring three goals.

The deal contains a purchase option of €6 million which Sassuolo will pay Sampdoria if he impresses after the season-long loan.
