Cardiff City, Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers were all rumoured to be interested in the 26-year-old who only joined the Italian club last summer.

Lafferty started his career at Burnley where he made his debut in August 2005 and scored ten goals in 87 appearances in three years at Turf Moor.

He left for Rangers in the summer of 2008 for £3.25 million, scoring 38 times in 138 appearances in a four year spell at Ibrox but left the club in June 2012 following the club’s financial difficulties.

The striker then moved on to Swiss club FC Sion signing a three-year contract but only lasted a season scoring eight goals in 28 appearances.

Lafferty was purchased by Palermo in June 2013 and scored 12 times in 35 appearances last season.

He has 37 caps for Northern Ireland, scoring nine times for his country.
