Chelsea's Wallace moves on loan to Inter Milan


Inter Milan have announced that they have signed Chelsea right-back Wallace on a season-long loan.

The 19-year-old made his senior debut at Fluminense and signed for Chelsea earlier this year before being loaned back to the Brazilian club.

Although he impressed on Chelsea's pre-season tour to Asia, the chances of obtaining a work permit in England are remote.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho was keen to loan him out for further experience.

Mourinho's former club Inter have taken up the option.

A statement on their official websiteexternal-link said: "FC Internazionale welcomes Wallace Oliviera dos Santos to the club.

"The paperwork on the Brazilian defender's loan move to Inter from Chelsea has been completed and the documents submitted to the Lega Serie A."
