The former Sassuolo midfielder hopes he can make a big impression at his new Italian Lega Serie A club.

23-year-old midfielder Stefano Sensi has been loaned out from Sassuolo and joined Internazionale Milan.

His career started in 2013 with Cesena in the Italian Lega Serie A.

He was loaned to San Marino for two years before being sold to Sassuolo in 2016.

With his new team he was loaned once to Cesena in 2016, and now to Inter.

“I’m very happy, I’ve already seen some different faces at my new Inter family,” he told the club’s official website.

“I’ve met very sociable people and relaxed people who make you feel in your element.”

He explained: “The fans have given me a great welcome and my first impression is a great one and this is a good place to start from.”

“I expect it to be a tough year with lots of hard work because Inter wants to return to where they belong as a great side on the European stage. This year, everything is in place to do well.”

“It’s an indescribable feeling, I’d honestly never have expected it. But I’m here now and I’ll give my best to work hard and be ready for the boss,” he continued.

“Conte is definitely a big coach with a winning mentality and that’s what you need in football today, he’s a coach who makes an impact and helps you to develop and I can’t wait to start working with him.”

He concluded: “It’s a big thing for us because when you receive all this support from the fans, it gives you extra motivation as a player and helps you to do your best on the pitch.”

“We’re very pleased with this and let’s hope that we make the Interisti very happy.”
