Milan sign Klaas-Jan Huntelaar from Real Madrid

AC Milan have completed the signing of Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar from Real Madrid. The 26-year-old signed a four-year contract with the Serie A club and will cost £15m.

'The Dutch footballer will undergo medical checks tomorrow after which he will sign a contract that will bind him to the club until June 30, 2013,' a statement on Milan's website said.

With the arrival of Kaka, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid this summer Huntelaar was deemed surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu despite only joining the La Liga club back in January.

The former Ajax player is Milan's first major signing of the summer and his arrival should go someway towards allaying the unrest of rossoneri fans who were unhappy at the club's inactivity in the transfer market.
