Inter decide against signing ex-Villa, West Ham striker Carew
Inter Milan have opted not to sign striker John Carew on a short-term deal.
The 33-year old Norwegian, who is a free agent after departing West Ham United in the summer, was training with the Nerazzurri with reports suggesting a temporary contract was close.
"FC Internazionale would like to thank Norwegian striker John Carew for the willingness and professionalism he has shown," read a club statement.
"His present physical condition, however, would require him to undergo a rather lengthy period of specific individual fitness work which is not compatible with the needs of the club."
