Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani has completed a loan move to AC Milan, the Italian side have confirmed. The 27-year-old has joined until next summer, with an option to extend his stay until June 2014. Milan can make the Italy international's move permanent if he makes at least 25 appearances for this them this season. Aquilani spent last season on loan at Juventus before returning to Anfield this summer.

A statement from AC Milan read: "AC Milan announces it has acquired Alberto Aquilani on loan with an option to buy the player's rights from Liverpool."

The former Roma playmaker said: "I am delighted to have arrived here. This is a leap in my career. I have come to Milan to do well. The clause of making at least 25 appearances? It's not a problem for me and I'm not thinking about it. I will do everything possible to earn the trust of the club."

Aquilani failed to hold down a regular first time place under Rafa Benitez, Roy Hodgson and Kenny Dalglish after signing for the Reds in 2009, starting in just 18 games in that period.

Damien Comolli, Liverpool director of football, said: "I want to pay tribute to the way Alberto has conducted himself during these discussions. Throughout the entire process, his only desire has been to play football and he has put this ahead of any other considerations and at personal cost to himself. We wish him well for the season ahead."

Although I don't think he ever got a fair crack at the whip and would have liked to have seen him have that oppurtunity, with the signings we made this season it was obvious he wasn't going to get any games, but I hope he does well with AC Milan.

I gotta feel a bit sorry for the guy... He's just being carted off everywhere and appears to be wanted almost nowhere. Such a bad panic buy from Rafa at the time.

Never really given the chance to stake a place in the side whether through injury or lack of trust by the manager , do feel sorry for him .
Agree with Alex a pure panic buy by Rafa.
