Croatia Under-21 midfielder Mateo Kovacic is due to have a medical today ahead of a move to Inter Milan, Dinamo Zagreb have confirmed.

The 18-year-old playmaker, who has already drawn comparisons to Luka Modric, will command a fee of around 11million euros, according to several reports.

"It all happened so fast and I'm still in shock, I do not even know what to say," Kovacic told Dinamo's website of the deal.

"Dinamo is my club and my home, so I find it hard to leave, but an offer from a club like Inter Milan, one of the biggest in the world, cannot be refused.

"Of course, it's not over and I'm waiting for my medical examination, but I believe this is just a formality."

Kovacic joined Dinamo as a youngster in 2007 from Linz. He was born in the Austrian city but is eligible for Croatia through his parents.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
