Rodrigo Palacio: Joins in a reported 11million euros deal

Palacio has put pen to paper on a three-year contract and joins the Nerazzurri in a reported 11million euros deal.

A statement from Inter read: "Rodrigo Palacio is an Inter player.

"Inter has registered the documents relating to Palacio's permanent signing from Genoa with the Lega Serie A offices.

"The striker is tied to Inter until June 30, 2015."

Palacio, 30, came close to joining Inter last summer but Genoa turned down all bids for the former Boca Juniors player.

The South American, who scored 19 goals in 32 league games last season, was tied to the Grifoni for a further two years.
