Official: Pandev joins Napoli

Goran Pandev has officially joined Napoli on loan from Inter, announced the Partenopei.

A deal was struck on Friday and the Macedonian international declared he was “happy that I'll have the chance to play in the Champions League for such a club as Napoli.

“I didn't want to leave Inter, but this will be a new experience for me and the most important thing is that I'm happy.

“In fact, I'm extremely happy.”

The official Napoli website released a statement late on Friday night confirming the loan switch had been completed.

Pandev was first brought to Italy by Inter in 2001 as a teenager, but barely featured, moving to Spezia, Ancona and Lazio.

He returned to the Nerazzurri on a free transfer following a contract dispute with Lazio in January 2010.
