Joel Obi moves to Torino

02 July 2015, 12:53

Milan – Nigeria midfielder Joel Chukwuma Obi has ended his 6 year stay with Inter Milan by moving to fellow serie A side Torino, in a fee reportedly worth 2.3 million Euros.

Obi's career with Inter has been heavily interrupted by various injury troubles restricting him to just 50 league appearances in four seasons, as a professional with the team.

Last season he scored his first ever career league goal for the Milan giant and despite making just 11 appearances, Inter Milan turned down an offer from the Middle East for his services in January last year.

He hopes his signing with Torino helps him fight his way into International reckoning after falling out of favour with handlers of the Nigeria team, no thanks to his lack of game time at club level.

The 24 year old said his joining Torino will help him develop further and he hopes to help the team in their push to have a stellar Serie A campaign next season.
