Silvestre to Inter almost done

Matias Silvestre is reportedly just a few steps away from completing a €11m transfer from Palermo to Inter.

The Argentine centre-back only moved to the Rosanero last summer from Sicilian rivals Catania, but again finds himself in demand this season.

Massimo Moratti’s Nerazzurri have been widely expected to make a move to shore up their defence for next season and, as report, they are on the verge of completing a €11m deal for the 27-year-old.

It is believed that Palermo will receive €7m of that as cash, with the other €4m paid through handing over the remaining 50 per cent of goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano’s contract to the Rosanero.

The two clubs are understood to be meeting tomorrow to finalise the move, where it is thought just the finer points will be ironed out.
