Cedric joins Inter on loan from Southampton

Sun 27 January 2019 | 10:16

Inter have bolstered their full-back options by bringing in Cedric Soares from Southampton on an initial loan deal.

Cedric Soares has joined Inter from Southampton on loan until the end of the season.

The full-back secured his move on Saturday after arriving in Milan to complete a medical 24 hours earlier.

Inter have the option to sign the 27-year-old on a permanent deal, with the fee reportedly set at €11million.

Head coach Luciano Spalletti had been keen to bolster his options at full-back, with Sime Vrsaljko struggling due to a knee problem since joining on loan from Atletico Madrid last July.

Manchester United defenders Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia have each been linked with a possible move to San Siro.

Cedric, a Euro 2016 winner with Portugal, made 119 appearances for Southampton in all competitions after arriving from Sporting CP in 2015.
