Super Eagles midfielder, Joel Obi will be playing his football next season with Serie A side Torino after almost 10 years at Inter Milan.

Obi was signed by Inter in 2005 and was part of the youth team that won the league title in 2008.

The following year, he was named in the senior team by then coach José Mourinho and was awarded a UEFA Champions League winners' medal in 2010.

Current coach Roberto Mancini does not have the Nigerian international in his plans which has led to him signing for Torino.

"I’m glad to be here,” Obi told  toronews.net.
