Essien penned an 18 month deal with Milan yesterday.
"Thank you for the welcome, everything is making for a beautiful impression," responded Essien on Milan Channel.
"Milan is a great club and I am happy to be here. I'm very happy for the words from Seedorf, he is a good person and I am happy to be here.
"And it is a pleasure to have heard his words [of support]. I await tomorrow, then there will be a presentation and afterwards I begin to train.
"I cannot wait to meet the team and the Milan family - from there we will see what happens.
"I always give the most, I fight for the team from the first minute. I hope to achieve something.
"Objectives? We shall see, now I am just waiting to start playing and to do my best for Milan."
