Official: Kjaer is AC Milan's new defender - the details of the operation

13 January at 12:20
Smin Kjaer is AC Milan's new centre-back. After completing his medical for the club last week, Sevilla have now announced the departure of the Danish international. In other words, the loan spell at Atalanta has been cut short for the 30-year-old.
The Rossoneri have struggled in defence during the first half of the season, thus turning to the transfer market to solve their issues. Having sold Caldara to Atalanta, in addition to the injury of Duarte, it was clear that they needed a centre-back.
After failing to land Todibo of Barcelona, Boban and Maldini shifted focus to Atalanta and Kjaer. Along with Sevilla, all three parties agreed to the solution, as was announced by the Spanish club on their official website a moment ago.
"Simon Kjaer has terminated his loan deal with Italian side Atalanta BC, and has now joined AC Milan on loan. The deal includes an option to buy the Danish centre-half at the end of the season," the statement read.
It remains to be seen when he will make his first appearance for the Rossoneri, although the feeling is that he could be on the bench for Wednesday's Coppa Italia game against SPAL.
