Alberto Aquilani completes loan move to AC Milan
Thursday 25 August 2011
Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani will return to Italy with AC Milan for the rest of the season after agreeing a loan move to the San Siro.
The former Roma player moved to Anfield in 2009 but struggled to make an impact in the Barclays Premier League and was allowed to spend the 2010/11 campaign back in Serie A with Juventus.
Now Milan have moved for the 27-year-old Italy international, with the deal only now hinging on the outcome of a medical.
Liverpool announced on their official website that an option has been negotiated to make the move permanent in the future.
Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli said: "I want to pay tribute to the way Alberto has conducted himself during these discussions.
"Throughout the entire process, his only desire has been to play football and he has put this ahead of any other considerations and at personal cost to himself. We wish him well for the season ahead."
