Young Irish Defender Begins Training With Inter Milan First Team

Irish U18 international Ryan Nolan has been pictured training with Inter Milan’s first team ahead of the new Serie A season.

Nolan who is a central defender signed for the Italian giants when he was 16 and was a part of Inter’s U19s last season even tasting UEFA Youth League action against both Dynamo Kiev and Spartak Moscow.

The young defender was born in Shannon Co.Clare but moved over to Murcia in Spain when he was eight and it was there where he was seen by Pierluigi Casiraghi a veteran scout for Inter, where he headed at the age of 16.

Nolan is held in high regard at the San Siro club with Stefano Vecchi, head coach of the U19s, describing him as “a centre-half with good physical attributes.”

Despite apparently being watched by the Spanish national team Nolan has appeared for Ireland u18s.

Should the Inter Milan man continue his rise and become even a small part of the Italian sides first-team plans over the next couple of seasons then Martin O’Neill and Roy Keane will certainly have to consider him for international selection.
