The French defender spent the second half of last season on loan with the Rossoneri after falling out of favour at Spanish side Valencia.

Milan had an option to make the deal permanent this summer but were unwilling to pay the asking price set by Los Che for the 28-year-old.

After weeks of negotiation, both clubs have reached an agreement that will see Rami move to Milan for a reported fee of 4.25million euros (£3.375million).

"The player will be at (Milan's headquarters) Milanello with the rest of the squad on Friday," Galliani told Gazzetta dello Sport. "We don't have the signature yet, as the president is busy, but the agreement is very close to completion.

"We improved our offer to Valencia, as the difference was paid by the player to ensure the transfer.

"He deserves a lot of credit for that."

Rami scored three goals in 18 league appearances for Milan last season.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
