The Italian midfielder has repeated on several occasions that he would love to stay at the Boleyn.
And he had shown enough to suggest that maybe he had more to offer than he has been allowed to show.
He, in fact, made nine appearances for us as we secured another season of Premier League football, having made over 70 appearances for the Rossoneri and capped 15 times by his country.
But speaking on his Instagram account the Italian international has made it clear he won’t be staying.
He said: ““It’s back to Italy and thank you Hammers for the experience.”
