The Netherlands defender has completed his move to Inter, signing a five-year deal to switch from fellow Serie A side Lazio.

Stefan de Vrij has joined Inter on a five-year deal, it has been confirmed by the Serie A club, who also snapped up Juventus' Kwadwo Asamoah on a busy day in the transfer market.

Netherlands international De Vrij had already confirmed his departure from Lazio at the end of his contract, with the move formally completed on Monday.

Defender De Vrij memorably conceded a penalty for fouling Mauro Icardi on the last day of the 2017-18 season, an incident that directly contributed to Inter qualifying for the Champions League at Lazio's expense.

"It was destiny. All players are professionals, I don't think he fouled me on purpose," Inter captain Icardi said to Mediaset Premium. "He tried to stop me scoring, it was just destiny."

Inter have also completed the signing of Asamoah, the versatile Ghana international joining on a three-year deal from Juventus.
