Transfer market: Santon joins Newcastle United
Wednesday, 31 August 2011 13:33:10
MILAN - After achieving success at Nerazzurri youth level and making 53 appearances in competitive matches with the first team (winning 7 trophies), Davide Santon has said goodbye to Inter. The 20-year-old full-back, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Cesena, has signed for Newcastle United, where he will have the chance to pit himself against the best of the Premier League. He worked his way up to the Serie A and the senior Italy team from the Nerazzurri U-17 side. After the deal was tied up this morning the documents were sent to the Lega Serie A.
Everyone at Inter wishes Davide an affectionate farewell and much success in the rest of his career, which began here with us.
i don't see why not having a buy-back clause is such a bummer, if he improves and we need a full back there will be nothing stopping us from buying him, and obviously he would prefer inter to other clubs if there was any competition
Damn, what a stupid transfer move!
Santon could be a rossonero in a few years to go :troll:
Good luck IL Bambino!!!!
Davide Santon.... Gasperini shared Mourinho, Benitez and Leonardo's views... the guy was lost and was probably overrated after his performance against Cristiano Ronaldo in an epic Champions League clash. we had to sell him to Newcastle United.
