MILAN - F.C. Internazionale has completed the loan signing of 24-year-old Yuto Nagatomo after registering the player's contract at the Lega Serie A offices. Davide Santon has moved to Cesena, also on loan, as part of the deal.
Everybody at Inter would like to welcome Nagatomo to the club. One of the undisputed stars of Japanese football, he was part of the Olympic Team at Beijing 2008 and also played for Japan at the 2010 World Cup. Last Saturday he won the 2011 Asian Cup under the guidance of ex-Inter coach Alberto Zaccheroni, whom Massimo Moratti and the Club would like to congratulate. Our new signing played a decisive role in the final against Australia, providing the cross for Tadanari Lee to score the winner.
We wish Davide Santon all the best for the second half of the season and hope can become a key player at the club owned by Igor Campedelli.
