Inter Milan confirm De Vrij arrival

Serie A By: Uche Duru | 02/07/2018

Stefan de Vrij has joined Inter on a five-year deal, it has been affirmed by the Serie A club.

Netherlands International De Vrij had officially affirmed his takeoff from Lazio toward the finish of his agreement, with the move formally finished on Monday.

Defender De Vrij memorably conceded a penalty for fouling Mauro Icardi on the final day of the 2017-18 season, an occurrence that straightforwardly added to Inter qualifying for the Champions League at Lazio's detriment.

"It was destiny. All players are professionals, I don't think he fouled me on purpose," Inter captain Icardi said to Mediaset Premium. "He tried to stop me scoring, it was just destiny."

Inter are also expected to complete the free transfer signing of Kwadwo Asamoah, with the Serie A official website having confirmed he has joined the Nerazzurri.

Asamoah, a versatile player who can feature in defence or midfield, won six successive Serie A titles and four consecutive Coppa Italia trophies at Juve.
