Standard Liege defender Zinho Vanheusden looks set to re-join Inter, with the clubs close to a deal to bring the 21-year-old back to the Giuseppe Meazza.
This according to Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri, who reports on his Twitter account that the clubs have agreed terms on the sale.
Vanheusden joined Standard on loan from Inter in 2018 before the Belgian club made his move permanent in 2019.
However, the Nerazzurri inserted a buyback clause in the deal and are thought to be ready to bring the Belgian back with the player expected in Milan tomorrow to sign his new contract with the club.
It remains to be seen what Inter’s long-term intentions are for the Belgian, though it is expected that the club will look to loan him out for next season.
Whether the player is loaned back to Standard for a further season or to another club also remains to be seen, though the Belgian club are thought to be keen on keeping him next season.
Tavolieri’s tweets: “Everything is ok for Zinho #Vanheusden. Agreement reached between #InterMilan & #Standard for the captain #RSCL who should sign his new contract this afternoon and should be loaned in stride. We do not yet know if it will be at Standard or not.#mercato“
“UPDATE: Zinho #Vanheusden is due to catch a plane tomorrow, so the contract should finally be signed later than this afternoon. Confirmation therefore also of the fact that this file is in its decisive phase. To be continued.#Standard#RSCL“
