Chelsea's Wallace joins Inter on loan
Inter Milan have confirmed the signing of Chelsea defender Wallace on a season-long loan.
The 19-year-old full-back signed with the Blues from Fluminense in December but was loaned back to the Brazilian club until this summer.
But new Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho noted in July that a lack of work permit this season would necessitate a temporary spell elsewhere for Wallace.
And he finally underwent a medical at San Siro earlier on Tuesday, before the Nerazzurri confirmed the signing via their official website.
"Wallace is truly very happy that things all went for the best and now he just wants to wear the Inter jersey as soon as possible," his agent Frederico Moraes told Tuttomercatoweb.com.
Wallace is poised to become Walter Mazzarri's 12th recruit of the transfer window since leaving Napoli in May to take over from Andrea Stramaccioni.
The Nerazzurri start their Serie A campaign with a home fixture against Genoa on August 25.
