AC Milan have announced the surprise signing of American defender Oguchi Onyewu.

Onyewu, who had a loan spell at Newcastle in 2007, has signed a three-year deal with the Italian giants after leaving Standard Liege.

The 27-year-old was linked with a host of English clubs earlier this summer, but Milan have moved to lure him to the San Siro.

Onyewu impressed during the recent Confederations Cup helping the USA reach the final and Milan have decided to bring him in to bolster their defensive options.

A statement on Milan's official website read: "AC Milan would like to inform that they have signed Oguchi Onyewu on a permanent basis from Standard Liege.

"The USA international has signed until June 30, 2012."
