Legrottaglie has Milan wish

Despite playing just 33 minutes for Milan, Nicola Legrottaglie wants a new contract with the Italian champions.

The veteran defender joined the Rossoneri in January, after his surprise move from Juventus, but he picked up an injury on his debut and never got another chance.

Legrottaglie's agreement expires next month, but he'd like to remain with the freshly-crowned Scudetto winners.

"With desire and faith, I say that I want to stay at Milan," he told Sky Sport 24. "I've been happy here, even if I have played just 33 minutes.

"I wasn't able to give my contribution as I would have liked. I still need to speak with the club and I will accept whatever decision is taken.

"I want to stay though, that is my wish, but I do not know what will happen with regards to my future."

It's unclear if Legrottaglie will sign a new deal as Milan have netted Philippe Mexes from Roma on a free transfer.
