The Nigeria international had been heavily linked with the switch and completed it officially on Monday afternoon.

The 22-year-old central midfielder had been co-owned by Parma until January 2012, when they sold their half to Inter for €3.5m.

Obi has now returned to the Stadio Tardini on a season-long loan and there is no option of a permanent switch. His contract at Inter runs until June 2017.

He arrived in Milan in 2005 from NEPA Lagos (Nigeria) and has since lifted the 2011 Italian Cup with the Nerazzurris.

The midfielder has earned 12 caps on the international stage for Nigeria.
