Davide Santon returns to Inter Milan from Newcastle on loan

Inter Milan have confirmed they have re-signed Davide Santon from Newcastle United on transfer deadline day.

Santon joined Newcastle from Inter in 2011 and has since made 76 league starts for the Tyneside club.

This season, however, he has made just one appearance for Newcastle, and the 24-year-old has now completed a move back to Italy.

Santon returns to Inter in a loan move with the option of making the deal permanent.

Sources told ESPN FC on Sunday that Santon flew out to Italy on Monday for a medical before finalising his six-month loan to the San Siro
