Jovetic completes Inter loan move

Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic has completed his loan move to Inter Milan.

The Premier League club have confirmed the 25-year-old has joined Inter on a year-and-a-half loan deal, with a view to a permanent transfer.

Jovetic joined City from Fiorentina in the summer of 2013, but has not been a regular in Manuel Pellegrini's side.

The move is not a surprise. Jovetic passed a medical earlier in the week and later sent a message to City's fans on Instagram which read "thank you and farewell".

A statement on City's official website on Friday read: "Stevan Jovetic has signed for Inter Milan on a year-and-a-half's loan with a view to a permanent transfer.

"The 25-year-old Montenegrin joined City from Fiorentina in summer 2013, but injury has consistently upset his progress for Manuel Pellegrini's side.

"He will now go on loan to the Nerazzurri for a season and a half, with a view to a permanent stay.

"Jovetic managed 11 goals from 44 appearances at City, with the highlight his double in the 3-1 win over Liverpool in August 2014, and he lifted the Premier League and Capital One Cup trophies in the 2013/14 season.

"Everyone at City wishes Stevan well for his time with Inter."
