The end of the football market is one week away and Inter Milan has been one of the most active team so far this January. The latest  deal completed by the club will send Ibrahima Mbaye to Bologna, who are currently playing in the Italian Serie B.

The deal between the teams consist of a loan with obligation to buy set at €6 million, but only if Bologna are promoted to Serie A at the end of the season. If they fail to achieve this (and at this point that would be a surprise), Mbaye would return to Inter.

Mbaye came to Inter in 2010, from the Senegalese youth club Etoile Lusitana, and played for Senegal's U-17 team. A year later he was making regular appearances for the Primavera squad under then-coach Andrea Stramaccioni, who now manages Udinese. Last year the 20-year-old left back was on loan at Livorno and had a solid season, accumulating a total of 25 appereances with 2 goals and 2 assists. But because the club failed to stay in Serie A he came back to the Nerazzurri at the end of the season.

FC Bologna's statement on the deal can be found on their official website, here.
