Armero lands in Milan ahead of expected move

Pablo Armero has arrived in Milan ahead of his expected move to the Serie A giants.

Armero courted attention after playing a starring role in Colombia's run to the World Cup quarter-finals.

Milan are reported to be on the verge of securing the 27-year-old on an initial loan from Serie A rivals Udinese, and appear to have moved a step closer to completing a deal.

"Waiting for #Armero... Pablo [has] arrived at the Malpensa Airport. Stay tuned," Milan posted on their official Twitter account.

Armero, who had been co-owned by Napoli until Udinese bought his full rights in June, spent the second half of last season on loan at Premier League side West Ham.

However, he had a largely forgettable time at Upton Park and made just five appearances for Sam Allardyce's side.
