Newcastle United defender Davide Santon has confirmed on his official Facebook page that he is re-joining Inter Milan until the end of the season, according to the Shields Gazzette.

The left-back has flown to Italy in order to complete the deal which will see him remain at the San Siro until the end of the season with a view of making it permanent in the summer.

Proposed Deal 

According to reports, Inter Milan will pay £3.5 million in the summer in order to make the deal permanent if he impresses during his loan spell. The 24-year-old has struggled to break back into the first-team at St James Park, playing just once this season after returning from knee surgery.

The Magpies have been using Massadio Haidara and Daryl Janmaat as their full-backs this season, leaving Santon on the sidelines.

Newcastle Arrival

The Italian joined Newcastle from Inter Milan back in 2011 and went on to make 82 appearances for the Geordie club. Santon signed a five-year deal at Newcastle after the two clubs agreed a fee of around £5.2 million.
