Former Manchester United full-back Ashley Young says he wants to “stay and win” with Inter Milan after enjoying his time in Italy.

Young moved to San Siro for £1.28 million earlier this month, bringing to an end his eight-and-a-half-year spell at Old Trafford.

The former Watford man grabbed a goal and an assist in his first five Serie A appearances for Inter, who currently sit in third place behind leaders Juventus and second-placed Lazio.

His current deal only keeps him at Inter until the end of June but Young is keen to extend his stay.

When asked whether he wants to stay at Inter, Young told Corriere Della Sera: “Of course I do. I love Italy, Milan, the warmth of the fans.

“I want to stay and win. I’m learning the language, the people are very passionate. When you talk, you actually scream.”

On Antonio Conte selling Inter to him, Young added: “When Conte called me, I immediately felt his passion, he transmitted it to me. It was a good opportunity and I said: ‘I’m going there, I want to be part of something great.’

“He’s not sitting down for even moment, but seeing him like that is a boost for the players. He has a winning mentality, he is a born winner and a fighter.”
