Flamini agrees to Milan move

Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini has put pen to paper on a four-year contract with AC Milan after passing a medical.

The 24-year-old, whose Arsenal contract will expire in June, arrived in Milan on Sunday and signed for the Rossoneri after completing his medical today – despite having been sidelined for a month with an ankle injury.

Milan vice-President Adriano Galliani had announced that the 2007 European champions were close to landing the French international after their 2-1 weekend victory over neighbours Inter.

"I am very happy, thank you," said Flamini, who this term has enjoyed his most consistent season in English football, making 30 Premier League starts and forming an impressive central midfield partnership with Cesc Fabregas.

The former Marseille trainee joined Arsenal in 2004 and went on to appear in 102 top-flight matches.

"Flamini is a very good player – we saw this when he played against us in the Champions League," said Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti. "This is an excellent signing."
