Cesena fullback Yuto Nagatomo will complete his move to Inter Milan.

The Japan international is set to sign permanently with Inter in the coming days.

"I think his transfer is just a formality," Cesena sporting director Lorenzo Minotti told Radio Sportiva on Saturday.

"A deal was pretty much already agreed in January, but then there were a few bureaucratic problems. The signatures are just missing now."

The Japanese international, an attacking left-back, joined Inter on loan in January just six months after moving to Serie A.

"The deal will certainly be concluded next week, where we will also talk about a few interesting young Inter players who could come to us," Minotti added.
