Official: AC Milan complete permanent signing of Simon Kjaer from Sevilla

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have confirmed the permanent signing of centre-back Simon Kjaer from Sevilla on a deal until 2022.

The Danish international has been exceptional since his arrival on loan from Sevilla in January, playing 18 games across Serie A and Coppa Italia and becoming Alessio Romagnoli’s most consistent centre-back partner.

Tuttosport (via MilanNews) reported on Tuesday that the club’s leadership do not view Kjaer as untouchable unlike coach Stefano Pioli, perhaps due to his age and/or his salary demands, but any speculation that he might leave has been put to bed.

The club have confirmed that they have exercised their option to buy the 31-year-old which is widely reported to be for a fee of €3.5m. The news was revealed on the official website.

Kjaer has signed a two-year deal with the Rossoneri which will see him remain at the club until the end of the 2021-22 season.
