Official: Milan sign Emanuelson

Milan have officially announced the signature of Ajax winger Urby Emanuelson on a permanent transfer.

Vice-President Adriano Galliani had already hinted yesterday that the deal was essentially done.

“AC Milan announce it has bought from Urby Emanuelson on a permanent basis from AFC Ajax,” read a statement.

“He has signed a contract that expires on June 30 2014.”

The 24-year-old can play as a left-back, but is primarily used on the left side of midfield.

He stems from the Ajax youth academy and his contract with the Dutch giants was set to run out in June.

Milan beat competition from Liverpool for the Holland international.
