Inter have officially signed Ionut Radu but loaned the goalkeeper back to Genoa for the season.
Inter announced on their official website that they had exercised their €12m option to buy back Radu.
However, they added he had been sent back to Genoa on loan so he can continue his development.
The 22-year-old played 34 of the Grifone’s 38 Serie A games last term, keeping seven clean sheets as they stayed up by the skin of their teeth.
He also impressed for Romania during their run to the European Under-21 Championship semi-finals.
The Nerazzurri have high hopes for the shot-stopper, with Samir Handanovic turning 35 on Sunday.
