The 29-year-old Nagatomo joined Inter from Cesena in January 2011 and has made 172 appearances and scored 11 goals in all competitions for the club.

He reportedly turned down a loan move to Manchester United in January. His contract was due to expire at the end of this season.

Nagatomo says ''I feel at home here. I didn't want to leave and I'm happy I can stay.''
