Inter have faith in Castaignos

The queue for Luc Castaignos is growing, but Inter want to keep the striker until the end of the season.

Serie A sides Bologna, Novara, Siena, Parma and Cesena have all been paired with loan bids for the striker this month.

However, it appears that the Italian giants don’t want to let go of the 19-year-old who they signed from Feyenoord in the summer.

“It’s true that a lot of clubs have asked Inter for him,” Karim El Atman, one of his agents, is quoted as saying.

“At this moment in time, Inter do not want to let him go out on loan to another club. The staff want him to remain in the first team squad.

“Luc too wants to give his very best to Inter for the rest of the current campaign.”

Castaignos has struggled to get a game at San Siro, scoring just once in four brief Serie A appearances totalling 159 minutes.
