Rolando: Frozen out at Porto so has sealed another loan switch

The Portugal international has passed a medical in Italy, allowing him to finalise a switch.

The 27-year-old centre-half should have no problem settling into Serie A life, as he spent the second half of the 2012/13 campaign with Napoli.

He found game time limited in Naples, after being frozen out in Porto, but has returned for a second shot at the Italian top flight.

Rolando will link up with his new team-mates when they return from their pre-season tour of America.

A statement released on Inter's official website read: "Rolando Jorge Pires da Fonseca, better known simply as Rolando, has signed for Inter on loan from Porto.

"Since beginning his career at Belenenses, he has acquired a wealth of experience at Porto (2008-2013), Napoli (2013) and Portugal (U21 and senior teams), and will now further strengthen Walter Mazzarri's defensive options.

"The centre-half is due to start training with the Nerazzurri when they return from their US tour."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
