Italian giant Inter Milan will not use their option to permanently sign Moroccan midfielder Houssine Kharja, who joined the team on a six month loan in January.
“I can confirm that the option to take Kharja has expired,” agent Beppe Galli told Radio CRC on Thursday.
The 29-year-old midfielder failed to establish himself at Inter, scoring only one goal in 15 appearances.
Kharja has been linked with a switch to Napoli and his agent welcomed the move.
‘’There is still a chance that Inter could sign him, but the player would like a switch to Napoli,” Galli added.
Kharja, who moved to Italy in 2001, played for several serie A clubs such as Temana, Roma, Piacenza, Sienne, Genoa and Inter.
