Brazilian side Internacional have announced the signing of Diego Forlan just hours after the Uruguay striker terminated his contract with Inter Milan.

Forlan, who had a year left on his contract in Italy, has put pen to paper on a deal which will keep him at Internacional until June 2015.

A statement from Internacional read: "Diego Forlan is the new reinforcement of Internacional. The Uruguay player is in Milan and will arrive in Porto Alegre on Saturday. The player will be unveiled tomorrow."

Forlan, 33, joined I Nerazzurri in 2011 from Atletico Madrid but endured a frustrating, injury-plagued campaign, scoring two goals in 22 appearances.
