Roberto Mancini announced on Tuesday which players will available to play in the next rounds of the Europa League and he had to make some changes because of the moves Inter made in the winter transfer market.

Here is the full player list:

9 Mauro Icardi (local player B)
10 Mateo Kovacic

21 Davide Santon (local player A)
22 Dodò
23 Andrea Ranocchia (local player B)
24 Giacomo Sciacca (local player A)
28 George Puscas
30 Juan Pablo Carrizo
33 Danilo D'Ambrosio (local player B)

93 Federico Dimarco (youth list B)
94 Guy Eloge Koffi Yao (youth list B)
95 Davide Costa (youth list B)
96 Andrea Palazzi (youth list B)
97 Federico Bonazzoli (youth list B)

Legend:
- Local Player A: a player who came up through the club's respective youth team
- Local Player B: a player who came up through any national youth team
- Youth List B: a player that is born after January 1, 1993 and has played at least 2 year for the club or the youth team of the club

There is no surprise about the exclusion of Lucas Podolski, as this news was previously announced and is due to some restriction by UEFA's rules about the changes a club can make from the first list (presented last September) to the second one. Pablo Daniel Osvaldo was excluded too and even that was nothing new since Inter are trying hard to sell him after his scene in the Derby d'Italia and there is a legal lawsuit underway between the player and the club, which we explained here.

Newly acquired players Davide Santon and Xerdan Shaqiri, instead, have been added to the list and they will have an important role in this competition for Inter because it's the only cup the team will play after the painful loss against Napoli in the Coppa Italia quarterfinals; alsoc it could be the easiest way for Inter to take part at any European cup, because the 3rd place in the Serie A its more a dream than a possibility right now.
