Milan move excites Mesbah

Djamel Mesbah has revealed his delight in joining title-chasing Milan from relegation-threatened Lecce this January transfer window.

The Algerian international completed a move from the Salentini earlier this week, signing a contract until June 2016.

After his first day of training at his club, the 27-year-old versatile left-sided player reflected on the move with Milan Channel.

“I am pleased and proud to have signed with Milan. I arrive with great humility and desire to grow. Arriving at Milanello was impressive, my new teammates have all been very kind to me on my first day too.

“I hope to fit quickly so as to make myself immediately available to the Coach.

“I’ve scored a few goals in my career, especially when playing wide in midfield. In Lecce, I have been working mainly as a defender, but I also like to play in the opponents’ half.”
