Football: Laz go for Di Canio.
The Italian firebrand, 36, flew into Rome this week to finalise the details of a two-year deal that will see him back at the club where he started his career.
Despite signing a one-year contract with Charlton during the summer, the lure of a return home is proving too great for Di Canio to ignore - and he is ready to take a significant pay cut.
He said: "I would do anything for Lazio. This move was too important to pass up. I don't think my club will refuse my request to return to Lazio.''
Charlton overcame Chievo 3-1 in their final pre-season friendly last night. Shaun Bartlett cancelled out Federico Cossato's opener before Bryan Hughes' penalty and Jonatan Johansson's goal ensured victory.
