Valeri has left Italian Serie A club Sassuolo without playing a game, joining struggling second-tier Italian side Ternana in an effort to improve his chances of gaining a ticket to Brazil.

The 29-year-old, a regular under former Socceroos coach Holger Osieck, has been unable to break into Sassuolo's senior team after suffering a serious leg injury in November, 2012.
