Lazio president Ugo Longo has confirmed that Dejan Stankovic is close to sealing his protracted move to Serie A rivals Internazionale.
Stankovic has been continually linked with a move to Inter during the January transfer window and it seems a deal has been struck to see the Serbia & Montenegro star move to the Giuseppe Meazza.
"The only January sale is with regards to Stankovic," said Longo. "Negotiations are taking place and we hope they will be concluded by the end of the month."
Lazio have decided to cash-in on Stankovic as he could leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.
Logo dismissed suggestions that there may be other departures as well as Stankovic, with Jaap Stam and Massimo Oddo thought to be attracting interest.
"No one else will leave," added Longo. "I can guarantee that.
"I'm so sure because I believe that we will be successful in our attempts to gain an increase in capital."
