Tajon Buchanan held his first interview as an Inter Milan player after completing his transfer from Club Brugge.
The Nerazzurri announced the capture of the 24-year-old on Friday. He joins the Italian giants on a permanent transfer to become the club’s first signing in January.
The Canadian international arrives as a direct replacement for the injured Juan Cuadrado.
The official Inter Milan YouTube channel has now published the first words from Buchanan as a Nerazzurri star.
The winger adopted a humble approach in his maiden interview with the club’s social channels.
He insisted that he intends to learn from his teammates while expressing his delight to join the Italian giants.
“At this point in my career, I thought that Inter was the right choice for me. I have been watching Inter for some time, it is a team and a place that I have seen myself playing at.
“I am excited for the future. I will manage all the situations little by little. I want to adapt as soon as possible and learn from the coach and the boys who are already here. I’m very excited and I want to learn and help the team.”

Buchanan also discussed his ability to adapt to various roles, putting himself at Simone Inzaghi’s disposal.
“I’m here to learn and adapt quickly. I’m very versatile. I can bring a lot to the team. I can play in many positions. I’m ready to work and show what I can give.”
The new Inter signing described himself as a direct player who likes to take on his marker.
“I’m a very direct player, I like to go one-on-one against the defender. I also played at right-back, so I’m also strong defensively.
“But I’m a direct player and I want to make a difference in the final third.”
Buchanan considers signing for Inter as a big achievement, especially after becoming the first Canadian to join Serie A.
“Being the first Canadian in Italy is a great achievement, I’m proud of myself.
“I don’t know what to expect for my debut at San Siro, I’ve never experienced anything like this in my life.
“Seeing the support on TV is crazy, they always sell out the stadium. I can’t wait to play and show what I can do.”
