Internazionale manager Rafa Benitez has completed the signing of Genoa defender Andrea Ranocchia on a long-term deal.
The 22-year-old central defender teams up with the San Siro giants after spending the previous two seasons on loan at Bari.
However, the youngster will stay with Genoa for the forthcoming season.
A statement issued by Inter read: "Ranocchia will be under contract at Inter until June 30, 2015. Inter and Genoa have agreed that Andrea will remain at the Liguria club for the 2010-11 season."
