Milan: Inter Milan have dropped plans to offer veteran Norwegian striker John Carew a short-term contract because of concerns over his fitness, Italian media reported on Wednesday. Carew, 33, has been without a club since helping England's West Ham United to return to the Premier League last May.

Inter, fifth in Serie A, are short of attacking options after Diego Milito suffered a serious knee injury two weeks ago and were considering offering Carew the chance of a comeback for the rest of the season.

However, Inter were not convinced that Carew would be able to return to Serie A action after medical tests, Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport both reported on their websites.
