AC MILAN HAVE completed the signing of Suso from Liverpool, the Premier League club have confirmed.

The Spanish playmaker had been heavily linked with a move away from Anfield in the January transfer window as he has struggled to figure in Brendan Rodgers’ first-team plans this season.

Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani said on Friday that a deal to bring the 21-year-old to San Siro was “99.9 per cent done”, and Liverpool announced the deal had been finalised this morning.

“Liverpool FC can confirm that midfielder Suso has today completed a permanent transfer to Italian side AC Milan,” read a club statement.

“The 21-year-old Spaniard departs Anfield for Serie A four-and-a-half years after joining the Reds from Cadiz CF.

“Everybody at Liverpool thanks Suso for his contribution and wishes him all the best for the future.”
