Castaignos completes Twente switch

After just one year together, Inter have officially sold young Dutch striker Luc Castaignos to FC Twente today.

Castaignos’ revealed the completion of his move back to his native country over the weekend, which has now been confirmed by Twente, who presented him to the media today.

The 19-year-old, who scored once in Serie A for Inter last term, moves on an initial €6m deal that is expected to rise depending on future bonuses.

The former Feyenoord forward had been on the look-out for a new club since the beginning of the summer, when he revealed that his stay in Italy was coming to an end.

“I’m proud to be here, I want to give my best to win,” the youngster said today.

“At Inter, in Italy, I missed that feeling of joy for playing football. I had did not have fun at the club. After one year there was no more confidence from Inter in my ability, even previously after wanting me.

“When I spoke to the directors I realised that the belief was over. But I still learned a lot at Inter.”
