AC Milan secure Abate, Antonini to new contracts

AC Milan have secured Ignazio Abate and Luca Antonini to new deals through to 2014.

Both players are products of Milan's academy and can play at either full-back or on the wing.

Right-back Abate and left-sided player Antonini have featured regularly this season and have now been rewarded with long-term contracts.

Abate came back from a co-ownership deal with Torino last season, while Antonini returned from a similar agreement with Empoli the previous year.

Manchester City were rumoured to be interested in Abate prior to the winter transfer window but he pledged allegiance to Milan.
