FORMER Sunderland defender Modibo Diakite could be heading to Serie A side Cagliari.

Reports in Italy say that Diakite, who has been at Deportivo La Coruna in Spain, is a free agent this month, and is in signing talks with Cagliari, who are now under the control of ex-Watford boss Gianfranco Zola, who replaced the sacked Zdenek Zeman recently.

Diakite previously played for Lazio and Fiorentina in Italy.
