thumbnail Hello,

The representative of the Bologna ace has announced that his client will put pen to paper on a long-term contract with the Nerazzurri to become their fourth summer signing

The agent of Gaby Mudingayi has confirmed that the midfielder has agreed a deal to join Inter.

Coming hot on the heels of Matias Silvestre and Samir Handanovic's prospective arrivals, the 30-year-old will follow in their footsteps and ply his trade at the Giuseppe Meazza next season.

After strengthening the goalkeeping and centre-back positions, the Nerazzurri made the signing of a midfield enforcer their next priority, and they have wasted little time in acquiring Mudingayi.

The Congolese-born midfielder, who is a full Belgium international, will join Inter for a reported 2 million (£1.6m), as his contract was due to expire at the end of the 2012-13 campaign.

Reflecting on news of the transfer, his agent told FCInter1908.it that the time was right for his client to join a big club, and is hopeful the former Lazio man can add to his 17 Belgium caps - the last of which came three years ago.

"He deserves this transfer, he worked hard for this," he noted. "It 's all done and he will sign a contract for two or three years. Gaby is obviously very happy.

"Only in Belgium is Mudingayi underestimated. I hope that this transfer may reopen the doors of the national team [for him]."

Mudingayi established himself at Belgian top-flight outfit Gent, before moving on to Torino, Lazio and Bologna, where he became a focal point in the Gialloblu's midfield, helping the side to a ninth-placed finish in Serie A.
