MILAN - Serie A leaders AC Milan signed
Ajax left wing-back Urby Emanuelson on a permanent deal on Sunday
to increase their defensive and midfield options for the title
"AC Milan announce the purchase from Ajax of Urby
Emanuelson, who has signed a contract until June 30, 2014," a
club statement said without adding any financial details.
Dutch media reports said Ajax would receive 1.7 million
euros for the player.
With Gianluca Zambrotta injured and Luca Antonini
inconsistent at left-back, the 24-year-old Dutch international
will provide competition in Milan's defence but could also be
used further forward in Massimiliano Allegri's 4-3-3 formation.
Emanuelson, who at first was due to head to Milan on a
Bosman free transfer this July before a deal was struck for his
immediate transfer, is a product of Ajax's youth system and
played against the Rossoneri in a Champions League win at the
San Siro in December.
