Radja Nainggolan today told his new supporters he was looking forward to playing football again after rejoining the Rossoblu on a loan deal from Inter.

The 32-year-old played just 45 minutes during the first half of the season under Antonio Conte, spread across four appearances in Serie A and one in the Champions League against Real Madrid.

Nainggolan scored six goals and provided six assists for Cagliari last season, before returning to his parent club Inter last summer.

“I’m arriving here with a lot of enthusiasm because it’s been a difficult three months for me, I’ve hardly seen the pitch,” the midfielder said in his welcome press conference.

“I like enjoying myself while playing football so I’ve come back with a lot of desire and enthusiasm.

“I feel good fitness-wise and I’ll be able to settle in quickly because I already know everybody here.

“It doesn’t take me much to earn the approval of other people, I’m here and I’ll make myself available for selection.

“I’ve always given everything for Cagliari and I know they expect a lot from me.”

Nainggolan’s departure marked Inter’s first transfer of the January window, which will see them attempt to offload unwanted players before reinvesting in players more suited to Conte’s ideas.

Christian Eriksen is likely to be the next player who leaves the club, albeit it remains unclear where his next destination could be.

Inter sit one point behind Serie A leaders AC Milan and will return to league action on Sunday when they play Crotone at San Siro.
