OFFICIAL: Kerlon Joins Inter From Chievo Verona

The Nerazzurri have formally completed the signing of‘Foquinha’.
The Lega Calcio has announced that Moura Souza Kerlon has joined Serie A champions Inter from Chievo Verona, where he spent last season effectively on loan.

The Nerazzurri signed the diminutive striker from Cruzeiro last summer, but were unable to register him as they had already filled their quota of non-EU players.

Therefore, Chievo stepped in and registered the former Brazil Under-20 star as one of their men, a ploy that Inter had already used in the past for Julio Cesar and Victor Obinna.

Kerlon struggled to make an impact at the Bentegodi due to injury problems last season, collecting just four appearances. Therefore, the Clivensi have opted not to retain his services for next campaign.

He will probably start pre-season training with Inter but is unlikely to stay put in Milan, probably being loaned out again to earn more experience.

Kerlon suffered a serious knee injury in March 2008, undergoing cruciate ligament surgery, which has severely hampered his progress over the past year.
