Bayern Munich star Xherdan Shaqiri has shunned Premier League sides Liverpool and Stoke in favour of a loan move to Italian giants Inter Milan.

Liverpool and stoke had both hoped of bringing in the Swiss international but will now have to wait until the summer should they wish to make a permanent switch.


Shaqiri has made just 14 appearances for Pep Guardiola's Bayern side, most of which have been from the bench, and has made the temporary switch to the Serie A in an attempt to prove himself to the former Barcelona coach.

The 23-year old had looked set for a Premier League switch but Inter have managed to win the race to sign the star.


Shaqiri will be the third signing Inter have made in this transfer window after they acquired Germany and Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski on loan until the end of the season and signed Guinea-Bissau forward Ze Turbo from Sporting Lisbon on a permanent deal.

The Swiss international has made 52 appearances and scored 11 goals for the German giants since joining from Basel in 2012.


He has also won the Bundesliga twice and the Champions League once in his time at Bayern.

It is unknown whether Inter will make a permanent move for Shaqiri in the summer but is understood that should the Italian side want to keep him come the end of his loan it will cost them £10M.
