Inter Milan assistant coach Beppe Baresi doesn't expect any loan deal in January for Samuel Eto'o.

The former Inter star has been linked with a sensational return from Anzhi on-loan for the second-half of the season.

But Baresi, speaking after the shock defeat to Catania, said: "Eto'o? I do not think we'll get him back, but it's ultimately up to the management of Inter.

"I think these rumours have surfaced because a few days ago the Cameroonian was seen in Milan."
