Adil Rami: Will officially join AC Milan in January

Adil Rami: Will officially join AC Milan in January

The France international defender was suspended by Valencia for one week without pay earlier this month after publicly criticising his team-mates and coach Miroslav Djukic in a radio interview.

Rami apologised for his comments but it soon emerged the 27-year-old would not play for the Spanish outfit again and Serie A club Milan have won a race with rivals Inter Milan and Napoli for his signature.

They must, however, wait for the transfer window to open on January 1, 2014, before fielding Rami in a competitive fixture.

A statement published on Valencia's official website read: "Valencia CF and AC Milan have reached full agreement for the transfer of Adil Rami to the Rossoneri in the upcoming winter transfer market.

"Rami, until the opening of the transfer window, has received permission from Valencia CF to train with AC Milan.

"The Italian club has an option to buy the France international."

Rami's last appearance for Valencia saw him dismissed in a 3-0 Europa League defeat to Swansea on September 19 and, after he subsequently claimed on Spanish radio station Cadena Ser that "there was only confusion" in the Valencia dressing room, he was dropped from the squad.

The Corsican joined Los Che from Lille in January 2011 and made 74 appearances in all competitions, scoring five goals.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
