No financial details of the transfer were revealed by either club.

Inter said in a brief statement: "Danilo D'Ambrosio is now an Inter player.

"The relevant documentation was submitted to the Lega Serie A offices this morning, confirming the defender's move from Torino to the Nerazzurri.

"The Neapolitan, 25, has signed a deal until 30 June 2018."

Inter sit fifth in Italy's Serie A but 11 points off the first qualifying spot for the Champions League.

Torino, the poorer relations to city rivals and champions Juventus, have had a surprisingly strong first half of the season and sit just one point behind Inter in sixth place.
