Candreva completes Inter move

Inter Milan have confirmed the signing of Antonio Candreva on a four-year contract from Serie A rivals Lazio.

The Italy international, who had a stellar 2015/16 season with Biancocelesti – netting 12 goals in 44 appearances, leaves Rome after a four-year stay and revealed his delight upon joining Roberto Mancini's side.

"I am really happy and proud to be here. I always wanted Inter and I'm really excited to become a Nerazzurri player at last," Candreva told his new club's official website.

"I'd like to thank Lazio for the seasons we spent together and for giving me the chance to realise this dream. I can't wait to play at San Siro and feel the passion of the Inter fans."

The 29-year-old winger becomes the Nerazzurri's first new arrival following the club's acquisition by the Suning Holdings Group.

"I am very happy to welcome Antonio to Inter," president Erick Thohir added. "I am sure he will prove a great addition to what is already a very strong squad."
