Balotelli signs Inter deal

Rising star Mario Balotelli has signed a new contract to stay at Inter until 2011.

The teenage striker broke into the Inter team during the second half of last season and scored seven goals in 15 appearances.

He shone in the Coppa Italia and Inter have now secured the 17-year-old's future on a long-term contract.

The forward's brother and agent Corrado had been hoping to agree a deal with Inter which tied Balotelli to the club until 2013.

However, Corrado Balotelli has confirmed the player is happy to have the opportunity to impress new Inter coach Jose Mourinho next season.

"Mario is happy and now it is up to him to earn his place with so many great strikers at the club," he told Radio Radio.
