Van Ginkel seals Milan loan move

New AC Milan signing Marco van Ginkel is thrilled to have moved to the San Siro on a season long-loan from Chelsea.

Van Ginkel completed a medical on Monday morning with the Italian outfit.

"I am very happy to have arrived in Milan," Van Ginkel said on www.acmilan.com. "A lot of Dutch players have played in this great club, big names.

"I'm just happy to be finally here.

"I spoke to (AC Milan's Holland international) Nigel De Jong and he told me very good things about this club."

Van Ginkel moved to Chelsea from Vitesse last summer but missed most of the 2013-14 campaign with a knee injury.

The 21-year-old is hoping to earn a regular spot in Filippo Inzaghi's side, who will not compete in Europe this season.

"I am a midfielder that defends but is also is able to score goals," Van Ginkel said. "I can play in many positions in midfield.

"I want to have more playing time and this is my aim this season.

"I believe at Milan I will have the opportunity to play more games, in what is a big competition, with many strong teams.

"I have not spoken to Mr Inzaghi yet but I've spoken to Fernando Torres this week."

Spanish striker Torres joined Milan last week on a two-season loan from Chelsea.

Milan still had time to complete another deal before the transfer window closed, announcing the arrival of Atalanta's attacking midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura for a fee reportedly worth seven million euros.

Milan said Bonaventura had signed until 2019.

News of the move came after Milan said they had failed in a bid to land Parma winger Jonathan Biabiany in a swap deal involving defender Cristian Zaccardo, as the Milan player had rejected the switch.

One player on his way out of the San Siro on Monday evening was Bryan Cristante - to Benfica, for a fee reported to be in the region of 6million euros.

"Italian midfielder Bryan Cristante has joined Benfica," a statement on www.slbenfica.pt read. "The player, 19, from AC Milan, will strengthen the senior team over the next five years."
