Inter Milan are closing on a move for free agent John Carew.

Former Aston Villa and West Ham United striker is in Italy today to sign for the Nerazzurri.

Carew told Gazzetta reporters: "I'm ready. I feel good and I've worked with the team over the last two weeks.

"I've travelled around and been to the cinema a few times but now I'm ready to give my all for Inter. I wasn't expecting the call - life is full of surprises."
