It’s official. Uruguayan center midfielder Matias Vecino completed his physical on Tuesday and officially joined Inter Milan after a four-year career with Fiorentina.

“I will start working with the squad tomorrow and I hope to start well. I have been in Italy for a few years now and I believe that I am the right age and have the experience to make this a positive adventure,” Vecino told Inter Channel Tuesday. “I hope to flourish whilst wearing this great shirt.”

As we reported yesterday, the 25-year-old has been with the Viola since arriving from Nacional in 2013. Since then, he went out on loan to Cagliari and Empoli between 2013 and 2015 before earning a role with Fiorentina in 2016.

In his two years playing for the Viola, Vecino scored five goals and had five assists in all competitions.

Terms of the deal include activating the release clause in Vecino’s contract for €24 million.

The reported contract between Inter and Vecino is for four years at €2.5 million per season.

He joins fellow Viola midfielder Borja Valero, who signed with the Nerazzurri earlier in the transfer window.

“Not only is he a very good player, but he is also a great person,” Vecino said of Velaro. “He will undoubtedly do well because he has a lot of quality.”

Vecino is the fourth signee for the Nerazzurri during the summer transfer window. Beside Valero, Inter has added defender Milan Skriniar and goalkeeper Daniele Padelli.
