Nesta renews until 2012

Milan will still be able to count on Alessandro Nesta next season after he extended his contract with the Rossoneri.

The defender's previous deal was set to expire in June, but he's agreed fresh terms for another 12 months after talks today.

Nesta, born in 1976, has been with the San Siro giants since his August 2002 move from hometown club Lazio.

The former Italian international, despite his age, has played in 26 League games for the Diavolo so far this term. Only Ignazio Abate and Thiago Silva, out of the defensive unit, have played in more.

Asamoah agent on Milan links

Udinese talent Kwadwo Asamoah's agent has denied negotiations with Milan, but reports continue to suggest he is Andrea Pirlo's heir.

It is highly unlikely that Pirlo will extend his contract with the Rossoneri, which expires next month.

“Massimiliano Allegri wants a player with different characteristics in that midfield role,” explained assistant manager Mauro Tassotti.

The man who fits the bill would appear to be Udinese's Ghana international Asamoah, who scored a fine goal against Chievo at the weekend.
