Saphir Taider has thanked Bologna “for letting me go and Inter for giving me this opportunity to play for a great club.”
The 21-year-old Algeria international has agreed a four-year contract worth €700,000 per season  plus performance-related bonuses.
“I am very happy,” Taider told Sky Sport Italia this afternoon.
“I thank Bologna for letting me go and Inter for giving me this opportunity to play for a great club.
“What are Inter for me? A huge club that has won everything. I am so happy.”
The transfer will be made official later this evening, but is delayed because Diego Laxalt is due to go to Bologna as part of an exchange and has not yet agreed personal terms.
