Luc Castaignos: Inter Milan striker is expecting to leave the club over the summer
Luc Castaignos has confirmed he will be leaving Inter Milan over the summer and has targeted a move to a 'big club'.
The Netherlands Under 21 international only joined Inter from Feyenoord 12 months ago, but he struggled for playing time in Serie A last season.
He has recently been linked with Liverpool and West Ham United, and the 19-year-old is expecting to join a club outside of Italy.
"Inter want to loan me to an Italian club or sell me," Castaignos said to Sky Italia. "I told them that I don't want to play anywhere else in Italy but at Inter.
"I came to Italy to wear the Nerazzurri colours and not play for any other club. Now I must go and Inter will help me find a club.
"I am saddened, I cannot deny it, I am disappointed not to have shown my worth, but this is football.
"It's a decision taken by the club and by me. Now I want to join a big club."
Feyenoord had expressed an interest in taking the striker on loan next season, but Castaignos admits a return to De Kuip is unlikely.
He added: "If I could change anything, then I would decide to go out on loan abroad, but this will not happen.
"Feyenoord? I'm disappointed that it is not possible for me to play there next season."
