Van Bommel delays move home

Milan enforcer Mark Van Bommel has dismissed suggestions that he is looking for a return to Holland next month.

The Dutch international has been paired with a switch back to his homeland in January for personal reasons.

However, talking to Tuttosport on Wednesday, the 34-year-old insists that he is not days away from leaving Milanello.

“I’ve never asked to be sold,” he stated. “When I left Holland in 2005 I promised that I would go back to end my career there.

“Nevertheless, that moment hasn’t arrived just yet. I have six months left on my Milan contract and then we’ll see what happens.”

The midfielder joined the Diavolo last January from Bayern Munich.

In 2005, he joined Barcelona for one season after impressing with PSV Eindhoven.
