Official: Inter sign Murillo

Inter have officially announced the signing of Jeison Murillo, with President Erick Thohir praising his ‘never-say-die attitude’.

The move has been arranged since February, but had not been officially announced by the Nerazzurri until this afternoon.

“F.C. Internazionale is delighted to announce that it has completed the permanent signing of Jeison Murillo from Granada,” a statement on the club’s website confirmed.

“The 23-year-old Colombian defender, who was part of Colombia’s Copa America squad this summer, has signed a five-year contract with the Nerazzurri.

“The whole Inter family would like to give him a very warm welcome to the club.”

Beneamata President Erick Thohir then extended his welcome to the centre-back.

“Murillo has determination and talent. He's a quality young player, I’m pleased to announce his arrival.

“[Coach] Roberto Mancini will get the best out of him and the fans will love his never-say-die attitude.”
