Swiss club Basel have confirmed the arrival of Inter-owned forward Darian Males on loan.

In a tweet on the official club account, they welcome the 20-year-old back to the club after he spent part of last season on loan there.

Males joined the Nerazzurri in the summer of 2020 from Luzern, where he was immediately sent out on loan to Genoa.

However, the player barely featured for the Ligurian club, making only one appearance for them in the Coppa Italia.

Males made a mid-season switch to Basel, where he found significantly more regular football, becoming a starter for the Swiss side.

It is thought that the Nerazzurri have been in talks for the extension of the player’s loan with Basel for some weeks in this transfer window, and now it can be confirmed that a deal has been reached.

Males will stay on loan at Basel for two years until the summer of 2023, at which point the Swiss club will have an option to buy him on a permanent basis.

Basel’s tweet reads: “We are happy to announce that Darian Males will continue to play for us in the coming season. We sign him on loan from @Inter until summer 2023 with the option of a permanent purchase.”
