Inter exit for Santon

Davide Santon will reportedly leave Inter in January in an effort to play more regular first team football.

The young defender is regarded as a star of the future, but he's failed to progress as expected after a sensational start to his Inter career under Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese tactician unleashed the full-back with great effect that saw Santon even handed his first Italian cap by Marcello Lippi.

However, hampered by a dip in form and a succession of injury problems, Santon has struggled to feature at San Siro over the last 18 months.

As a result, Inter, according to today's edition of Tuttosport, will allow him to leave in the New Year on loan or in a co-ownership deal.

Genoa, given Inter's interest in Andrea Ranocchia, are an option even if it is also suggested that Fiorentina are keen.
