Napoli captain set for new deal

Napoli defender Paolo Cannavaro is ready to pledge his long-term future to the club, according to the player’s representative.

The 31-year-old signed a contract until June 2015 in February 2011, and he is now set to be rewarded with a new deal.

Cannavaro’s representative has made it clear that his client has no desire to leave the club and that he expects to open talks over a new contract in the summer.

“At the moment it is premature to be talking about a contract,” agent Gaetano Fedele told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“Paolo is the captain and it is logical that (signing a new deal) is not a problem, so this matter will be discussed calmly this summer.”

Paolo Cannavaro began his career at Stadio San Paolo, but left the club for Parma after making just two league appearances for the Azzurri.

Rock-solid showings at Ennio Tardini helped him return to his boyhood club in the summer of 2006 and he has never left Stadio San Paolo since.

Cannavaro has made a total of 226 Serie A appearances for the Azzurri, and scored 8 goals in the process.
