Thiago Silva and Van Bommel sign

Milan have officially extended the contracts of Thiago Silva, Mark Van Bommel and Flavio Roma.

The club website released a statement this evening confirming that defender Thiago Silva had put pen to paper on a new deal tying him to San Siro until June 30, 2016.

This extension puts an end to reports of the Brazilian leaving the Rossoneri for Real Madrid, Barcelona or one of the Premier League sides.

Milan also confirmed that Van Bommel and Roma have signed until June 30, 2012.

Both veterans were out of contract next month and their futures uncertain.

Van Bommel arrived from Bayern Munich in January for the final six months of his contract with the Germans.

Other players whose deals are set to expire in June include Andrea Pirlo, Alessandro Nesta, Massimo Ambrosini, Pippo Inzaghi and Clarence Seedorf.
