Inter sign former Parma defender Felipe

The 30-year-old, who left the Ennio Tardini after a dispute over unpaid wages, as agreed a deal until the end of the season

Brazilian defender Felipe has signed a contract until the end of the season with Inter after quitting crisis-club Parma.

The 30-year-old left Parma after a dispute over unpaid wages – an issue that continues to plague the crisis-struck Tardini club.

Felipe joins an Inter side that have registered clean sheets in a third of their Serie A fixtures this term, but have also made a habit of conceding late goals in recent weeks.

Inter face one of Felipe’s former clubs, Fiorentina, on Sunday in a fixture crucial to their hopes of securing a European spot in Serie A.

He will be unavailable to play in Inter’s Europa League campaign.

Parma, meanwhile, remain embroiled in financial trouble and had their last scheduled Serie A game with Udinese postponed.

Club general manager Sandro Melli compared the club this week to the Titanic after they were forced to auction off dressing-room equipment in order to help balance the books.
