Inter ready Castaignos deal

Dutch teenager Lucas Castaignos is expected to put pen to paper with Inter tomorrow, although he will stay at Feyenoord until the end of the season.
The 18-year-old burst onto the scene whilst representing Holland under-19s, and his form in the Dutch league this season has seen him become hot property with several comparisons to Thierry Henry.
A host of big clubs across Europe were thought to be interested in signing him, but it now seems Inter will snap him up. The Nerazzurri’s technical director Marco Branca is currently in Rotterdam finalising a deal for the talented striker. Assuming the player can agree personal terms with the Italian and European champions, he will join on a three-and-a-half year contract.
He is still expected to remain with Feyenoord on loan until the end of the season when he will make the move to Italy. Inter are expected to pay €5m for the player, and will also send out-of-favour defender Nelson Rivas to Feyenoord as part-exchange.
Strikers such as Klaas-Jan Huntelaar have emerged from Holland in recent years with glowing reputations only to struggle in some of Europe’s major leagues, but Inter view Castaignos as one for the future and won’t rush him into first-team duties. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
