Manchester City have announced that Stevan Jovetic will join Serie A side Inter Milan on an 18-month loan deal with a view to making it a permanent switch.
The 25-year-old has struggled to make an impact in England with the Citizens due to serious injury problems and severe competition for places in the first-team at the Etihad Stadium.
Jovetic at City
Since arriving in Manchester in 2013 from Italian side Fiorentina, Jovetic has been behind the likes of Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko, Alvaro Negredo and more recently Wilfried Bony.

Despite the competition for places and the lack of first-team football, the Montenegro international decided to stay put in England last summer and fight for his place in Manuel Pellegrini's first-team.
However, in January, Jovetic's future was all-but confirmed with the Chilean manager signed Bony from Swansea City for £28million. After Bony's arrival, Jovetic was dropped from Pellegrini's Champions League squad and then failed to make a single appearance for the club.

Jovetic in Italy
Jovetic has flown over to Italy and arrived at the San Siro after undergoing a medical and filling out the necessary paperwork.
The Montenegro international will spend a year-and-a-half at the San Siro, with the chance to make it permanent in 2016.
During his stay in England, the striker netted 11 goals in 44 appearances, but he will be hopeful he can re-find his former-form which secured his move to City in the first place. Jovetic was a rising star in Italy with Fiorentina and he is hoping to resurrect his career in Serie A.
Inter Milan president Erick Thohir, had this to say on the news: "We are excited by the signing of Jovetic.
"He's another important addition to our squad. A dynamic forward that will add value to our attack. Mancini will get the best out of him.
"Welcome to the club, Stevan and Forza Inter forever!"
Jovetic joins Martin Montoya, Miranda and Geoffrey Kondogbia in completing moves to Inter Milan this summer. He's also the third Premier League player to move to Italy, following Wojciech Szczesny and possibly Edin Dzeko.
Mohamed Salah from Chelsea could become a fourth if he finalises his proposed move to AS Roma.
