AC Milan have completed the signing of Palermo fullback Cristian Zaccardo.

Zaccardo's agent has confirmed a transfer to Milan in exchange for Djamel Mesbah to Parma.

"Milan is a great opportunity for Zaccardo and a real high point in his career," agent Alessandro Moggi told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"His contract will be to June 2017, as Milan have bought out the existing deal from Parma. Zaccardo hasn't given up on anything."
