The 24 year-old Italian International defender Davide Santon has just confirmed on his Facebook page that he is set to leave Newcastle to join Inter-Milan, on loan for the rest of the season.
Davide Santon – moving to Inter
Santon has just said this on his Facebook page, with the defender having traveled to Italy yesterday to have his medical:
“Life is strange… I never expected to return,”
“Thanks Newcastle and thanks to all the fans for these 3 and a half years together… we’ve spent many good times…. This city and this team will always remain in my heart.”
“I start a new adventure…. I’m happy to return to Inter… There I started my career and there I lived so many important moments…. I will give my best to repay the faith.”
As we reported earlier today the deal is for an initial loan spell with the move likely to be made permanent in the summer.
But notice that Davide doesn’t even mention a loan deal, with the expectation that he has already played his last game for Newcastle in the 1-0 defeat at Leicester in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.
Davide played 94 times for Newcastle with one goal.
Santon’s contract runs out in the summer of next year when he would become a free agent, and could leave for nothing – so this is the Newcastle clearing house in action.
Nothing official on this from Newcastle yet.
