AC Milan have announced the signing of Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano.

The player had been training with the Serie A leaders in Dubai and now the club have made his move official.

A short statement on the club's official website read: "AC Milan announce the acquisition of Antonio Cassano."

Milan had confirmed last month they were in negotiations with the player after his relationship with Sampdoria reached rock bottom following a heated row with president Riccardo Garrone.
