AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has announced midfielder Mathieu Flamini has left the club.

He confirmed Milan have closed the door on contract renegotiations with Flamini.

"The deadline has passed and we told his lawyer we won't be waiting any more. We'll bring in a new midfielder by August 31. It could be Alberto Aquilani or someone else, as he is a Liverpool player and we're not in talks with them."
