Samp confirm 'Poli to join Inter'

Sampdoria have agreed terms to hand Andrea Poli to Inter on loan with an option to buy, confirmed their director of sport.

“The Poli to Inter move has effectively been completed, although it will only be made official at the start of next week,” said Blucerchiati chief Pasquale Sensibile on

“Poli has been tracked strongly for at least two years by Marco Branca and his staff, even if we were only able to complete negotiations now because the transfer market has its own rules.

“Poli will move on loan with an option to buy. Inter will pay us a sum now and in June meet Samp again to discuss his position.

“We allow Poli to leave despite our respect for the player and maintain an excellent rapport with him, but we couldn't deny him the opportunity to join a big club like Inter. It is an important chance for him to grow.”

Sensibile also confirmed negotiations included “taking out an option on an Inter youth player.”
