Striker seals San Siro switch

AC Milan have confirmed the capture of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar from Real Madrid for an undisclosed fee. The Holland striker has secured a switch from the Spanish capital to the San Siro after agreeing a four-year deal on Friday. "After passing the medical, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is officially a Milan player," read a statement on the Serie A giants'official website. "The Dutch striker has signed a contract which ties him to the club until June 30, 2013. "All Milan gives Huntelaar the warmest possible welcome to the Rossoneri family. "Klaas is Dutch, as so many of the sweetest memories of the whole Milan story in the past 23 years are Dutch." Huntelaar only moved to the Bernabeu from Ajax in January, but has found life difficult in Spain and has been unable to hold down a regular starting spot in the side. The arrival of several big-name players over the summer - including Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema - saw the 25-year-old pushed even further down the attacking order and Madrid made it clear they would listen to offers for the Dutchman. A proposed move to Stuttgart was turned down by the player while Tottenham had also expressed an interest in Huntelaar, who scored eight goals in 20 Primera Division appearances. The talented marksman becomes the first major exit at the Bernabeu this summer and more are expected to follow in the coming weeks.
