Adel Taarabt: Making loan move to AC Milan

Adel Taarabt is undergoing a medical at AC Milan with a view to joining the Italian giants on loan for the rest of the season, the Rossoneri have confirmed.

The 24-year-old Morocco international joined Fulham on a season-long loan from relegated QPR last summer but has made just 16 appearances in all competitions for the Cottagers.

A statement from AC Milan read: "Adel Taarabt has landed on a private jet to (Milan's) Linate airport.

"In order for his transfer to the Rossoneri club to be made official, we must wait for the necessary procedures to take place."

Former Lens and Tottenham playmaker Taarabt says he is looking forward to linking up with former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli at the San Siro.

"I am honoured to be able to play in the best club in the world," Taarabt told www.acmilan.com. "I have spoken to (AC Milan coach Clarence) Seedorf and we are both really happy.

"I am a striker and I like to play behind the forwards.

"I don't know personally Balotelli but I know very well who he is and it will be great to play with him."
