Leverkusen signs Donati from Inter

Leverkusen, Germany (Sports Network) - Bayer Leverkusen have signed Italian defender Giulio Donati from Serie A side Inter Milan, the club confirmed on Friday.

Donati, 23, makes the move from the San Siro to the BayArena on a four-year deal for an undisclosed transfer fee.

Donati has represented his country at Under-20 and Under-21 level and, after spending the past two seasons on loan at Serie B clubs, is hoping to step up and make an impact in the Bundesliga.

"Bayer is a top German club and also has a good reputation in Italy," Donati told his new club's official website. "I am looking forward to the Bundesliga and being in the Champions League this season with Leverkusen is a very special challenge. I'll give everything to achieve our goals with Bayer."
