Onyewu leaves Milan for Twente

Milan defender Oguchi Onyewu has joined Dutch champions FC Twente on loan until the end of the season.

The United States international has made just one appearance for Milan since his arrival in 2009.

The 28-year-old has endured an injury-ravaged 18 months and got into a fight with Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the Swede went in a little too hard during training.

Onyewu had accepted to play for free this season such were his knee problems.

He has yet to recapture the form that he showed at Standard Liege, but a reunion with former mentor Michel Preud'homme could see a resurgence in Onyewu's fortunes.
