AC Milan have announced on their official website that they have secured the services of Luca Antonellifrom Genoa for an undisclosed fee.

Antonelli is a product of the Milan youth academy, but failed to break into the first team at San Siro during his initial spell at the club. He was farmed out on loan to Bari in 2007-08 before he was offloaded to Parma on a permanent basis in 2008.

He then joined Genoa in 2011 and had since developed into a key player at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, eventually earning himself a return to his boyhood club.

The left-back is Milan’s fifth signing of the January transfer window after the arrivals of Alessio Cerci, Salvatore Bocchetti, Mattia Destro and Suso, with Gabriel Paletta set to become their sixth signing later on Monday.
