Inter are likely to bring former academy defender Zinho Vanheusden back to the club this summer, according to a report in the Italian media today.
Tuttosport’s print edition repeated their story from yesterday in which they said Vanheusden was due to be re-signed by the Nerazzurri from Standard Liege.
Inter have an agreement to bring the defender back at the end of the season and they would have to renegotiate those terms if they did not want to do so.
The only reason they would want to leave Vanheusden in Belgium, the Turin-based paper explained, is if they wanted the 21-year-old to get more game time after having just recovered from a serious injury.
Vanheusden ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament a few months ago for the second time in his career, but this week he received the green light from Standard Liege’s medical staff to resume training.
Inter have three defenders who are out of contract at the end of this summer – Andrea Ranocchia, Aleksandar Kolarov and Danilo D’Ambrosio – so it is likely that Antonio Conte will want to evaluate Vanheusden in person during pre-season.
