Reports: Sevilla desperate for defender to complete permanent move to Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Simon Kjaer has very clear ideas about his future: the Danish defender wants to stay at Milan, a report claims.

Kjaer arrived at Milan in January on loan from parent club Sevilla until the end of the season with an option to buy inserted after a difficult first half of the campaign with Atalanta.

MilanNews recalls the statements made by the 31-year-old over the weekend, during which he declared: “I will try to put pressure on the club to use their option of letting me stay. I am working physically and mentally only for that, because my only dream, right now, is to stay at Milan.”

These words are music to the ears of Sevilla who have no intention of standing in the way of Kjaer’s outright transfer to Milan and indeed they are pushing for that solution.

The report also cites Spanish newspaper AS in claiming that the former Fenerbahce centre-back has not been part of the plans of the Andalusian club for some time.

Head coach Pioli gave Kjaer great confidence right away and promoted him to the starting XI alongside captain Alessio Romagnoli, so the player has undergone somewhat of a rebirth with the Rossoneri and for this his only desire is to stay, but it will all depend on Milan.
