Genoa had said last month that Argentine striker Palacio, 30, would head to Milan and Inter have now announced that the deal has been completed.

A statement from Inter read: "Rodrigo Palacio is an Inter player. Inter has registered the documents relating to Palacio's permanent signing from Genoa with the Lega Serie A offices. The striker is tied to Inter until June 30, 2015."

Palacio, who scored 19 goals in 32 games in the league last season, is said to have cost Inter €11 million.
