Former Lecce wing-back Djamel Mesbah is thrilled with his move to AC Milan.

After his first day of training at his club, the 27-year-old versatile left-sided player reflected on the move with Milan Channel.

"I am pleased and proud to have signed with Milan. I arrive with great humility and desire to grow. Arriving at Milanello was impressive, my new teammates have all been very kind to me on my first day too.

"I hope to fit quickly so as to make myself immediately available to the Coach.

"I've scored a few goals in my career, especially when playing wide in midfield. In Lecce, I have been working mainly as a defender, but I also like to play in the opponents' half."
