Former Roma striker Edin Dzeko discussed his move to Inter after spending the previous six years in the Italian capital.

The Bosnian international officially joined the Nerazzurri yesterday, signing a two-year contract with the club.

“It feels great to be here. I’m thrilled,” he said to Inter’s official website.

“This is a great opportunity for me and I want to thank the manager and the directors for showing so much faith in me and believing I can still make a difference.

“Inter are a huge club, the champions of Italy, and I’ve seen what they’re about during my six years in Serie A. Now I’ll get to play for them myself and I’m delighted. I can’t wait to get out there with my new teammates.”

He added, “I’ve only just arrived but I know Inter have a team full of stars. I’m sure we’ll enjoy ourselves and the fans will too. A salute to them, I want them to know I’ll give my all for this club.”

Dzeko departs Roma as the club’s third time leading goalscorer, with a final tally of 119 goals scored in 260 appearances.
