Rami seals permanent transfer to Milan

Milan have confirmed permanent signing of defender Adil Rami from Valencia on a three-year contract.

The French centre-back made 18 Serie A appearances for Milan last season after making a loan move to San Siro in January.

And he will return to the club ahead of the 2014-15 campaign after a deal with the Liga outfit was confirmed on Saturday.

Rami has put pen to paper on a contract until the end of June 2017 and will play his part in a new era under Filippo Inzaghi.

The 28-year-old, who has 26 France caps to his name, had made no secret of his desire to stay with Milan after a turbulent spell with Valencia - which included a fall-out with pervious coach Miroslav Djukic.
