Abate set for new Milan deal

Full-back Ignazio Abate has reportedly agreed a contract extension with Milan.

His current deal is due to expire on June 30, but Sky Sport Italia claim a deal has now been struck.

The 28-year-old grew up in the Milan youth academy and had loan spells at Napoli, Piacenza, Modena, Empoli and Torino.

Abate suffered from numerous injury problems in recent years and this season managed 16 appearances between Serie A and the Coppa Italia.

He had been pushed down the pecking order under Clarence Seedorf, but Pippo Inzaghi put him back in the starting XI when fit.
