Pazzo at Milanello: I'm very happy

Giampaolo Pazzini has arrived at Milan's training ground to seal his transfer from city rivals Inter.

Pazzini and his former Sampdoria strike partner Antonio Cassano are at the centre of a controversial swap deal, with the Rossoneri set to hand €7m plus Cassano over to the Nerazzurri in exchange for Pazzo's services.

“I am very happy,” the 28-year-old stated upon his arrival at Milanello. “I knew all about it yesterday.

“Am I ready to take Filippo Inzaghi's place? We'll see.”

According to Sky Sport Italia Cassano's medical is the only remaining formality, with confirmation of the deal expected this evening.
