Simon Kjaer delighted to be outright AC Milan player

Simon Kjaer is delighted to now be an outright AC Milan player.

Kjaer's loan from Sevilla became permanent earlier this week.

“Milan is simply Milan. It has always been a special club for me," he told

“Since I went abroad as a young player 12 years ago and arrived in Palermo, this was simply the club for me.

“Back then I told my agent that one day I would love to play in that red and black jersey.

“It has been close a few times before, but now the timing was right. Milan is a gigantic club with a gigantic history.

“I honestly believe that it is a privilege to play here and at the same time have the opportunity to help bring this club back to where we belong: to the top of Italian and European football.

“Since I arrived in January, we have been working hard, developing as a team, and I have seen great progress.

“We have a very young team with a lot of potential, and I believe that here in 2020 we have shown the way back to the top.

“It will demand a great deal of work from everybody, but I believe in a bright future for AC Milan.

“We have the history, the winning mentality, the passionate support of our fans, and great ambitions."
