Inter hang on to Obi



Nigeria international, Joel Obi will not be moving to English Barclays Premier League club, Sunderland in the winter transfer this month.

According to Obi's agent, Renzo Contratto, the player remains an important playing member of Italian Serie A club, Inter Milan.

He also clearly stated that Obi will not leave Inter Milan this January.

But Contratto is not ruling out a possible move to England in the future for the Nigerian youngster.

“It will be very difficult this winter for him to go to England or any club because right now he is a very important player for Inter.

“In the future Obi wishes for the possibility to move to the Premier League but not at the moment,” Contratto was quoted as saying by Sky Tyne and Wear.

Earlier this week, Sunderland were linked with a move to prise away the midfielder from Inter Milan.

The Black Cats were also said to be exploring a loan option to sign on the 21-year-old Nigerian, who will miss out on appearing at this month's Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

The midfielder is reportedly valued at €5 million.

Obi has made just one Serie A appearance for the Nerazzurri this term owing to a season blighted by injuries.
