Southampton full-back Cedric Soares has completed a loan move to Inter Milan, the Premier League club have announced.

The 27-year-old, a European champion with Portugal in 2016, has joined the Serie A side until the end of the season with an option to make the move permanent.

Cedric joins Manolo Gabbiadini, Steven Davis and Wesley Hoedt in leaving St Mary’s this month as manager Ralph Hasenhuttl attempts to reshape his squad.

Cedric joined Southampton in 2015 in a 6.5 million euros (£4.7million) deal from Sporting Lisbon and has struggled for game time under Hasenhuttl.
