Santon unsure of Italian future

Davide Santon has no plans of a quick return to Italian football. “I’m happy at Newcastle,” said the defender.

The Italian Under-21 international, who has also played for the full national side, moved to England in the summer.

Despite attracting the interest of Roma, he left for the Premiership after Inter accepted a €5.3m bid from Newcastle.

“I don’t know if I’ll return to Italy,” the youngster told FC Inter News. “After all, I have a contract for the next five years.

“Moving to the Premier League was the right decision for me. It’s not easy to leave your own country, but I have settled well thanks to my Coach and my teammates.

“The differences between Italy and England? It’s much more physical over in England,” continued the Azzurrini captain. “Perhaps the weather too.”

Santon made his Inter debut under Jose Mourinho. He spent the final six months of last term on loan at Cesena.
