'No regrets' - Southampton disaster buy looking for a fresh start

Dani Osvaldo is looking to turn his career around at Inter Milan after a poor season.

Southampton misfit Dani Osvaldo is looking to put his nightmare season behind him after signing for Inter Milan.

The Italian striker was the Saints' record signing, joining from Roma for £12.8 million last summer. He failed to adapt to Premier League football, however, and was loaned out to Juventus in January after a training-ground bust up with teammate Jose Fonte.

After returning to Serie A Osvaldo struggled to break into the Juventus first team, and scored just one league goal last season.

The 28-year-old says he has no regrets over his 2013-14 campaign, however, and is looking to get back on track with his new club.

"I never look over my shoulder, at the past, I look to the future," Osvaldo said. "It was hard to adapt to English football at the beginning and then it's always hard to arrive at a team in the middle of the season. Plus I didn't play much as I had players like Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez in front of me.

"But I had a great time at Juve. I had the opportunity to win the Italian title, which had never happened to me before.

"I have a lot of desire to return to my level and prove myself in this shirt."

Inter are aiming to challenge for the Serie A title this season after a number of years out of the race for the Scudetto. Despite the Italian club's struggles in the past few years, Osvaldo says he was delighted to hear of their interest in signing him.

"It's an honor to be at a club like Inter," he said. "I'm very happy and I can't wait for the season to start. When a club like Inter calls, I don't think any player has any doubt whatsoever.

"It is useless to make judgments before the season starts'It'll be on the pitch where we see whether we're a squad which can aim for the title or not."
