Cartoon of the Day: Christmas comes early for Sneijder & Santa cartoonist Omar Momani gives us his unique take on the football news of the day
Christmas has come early in Wesley Sneijder's household as the midfielder has been sent on a premature festive break by Inter.

The 28-year-old has refused to commit to a new deal which would see his wage cut with the Serie A club and has been subsequently frozen out of Andrea Stramaccioni's squad since September 26.

A short statement from Inter on Tuesday confirmed the following: "It was the last training session of 2012 at the Angelo Moratti centre for Philippe Coutinho and Wesley Sneijder today.

"The two players, at the behest of the club and head coach Andrea Stramaccioni, will rejoin their families for Christmas from tomorrow."
