AC Milan have officially announced that centre-back Simon Kjaer has extended his contract with the club by another two years.
There have been persistent rumours over the past couple of weeks stating that Kjaer is closing in on extending his deal with the Rossoneri, which was set to expire in June 2022, and now the club have confirmed that he has extended his stay by two years until 2024.
The statement describes the Danish international as ‘an exemplary professional on and off the pitch’ and notes how he made the 30-man shortlist for the 2021 Ballon d’Or award, in part due to his heroics in saving his friend and team-mate Christian Eriksen at the European Championships.
Kjaer joined the Rossoneri in January 2020, making his debut against SPAL in the Coppa Italia and he has already racked up 66 appearances for the club. He also came on during last night’s win over Torino, helping to keep a clean sheet in the 1-0 victory.
