AC Milan Confirm Adiyiah Signing

An impressive outing at the recent Fifa U-20 World Cup had handed Ghana's Dominic Adiyiah a major move with Italy's AC Milan announcing the signing of the striker. Adiyiah becomes Milan's first signing for the January transfer window from Norway's Fredrikstad FK.The striker's move is subject to a mandatory medical test though Milan have agreed a deal in principle with his club. "On the transfer market we are moving and I can say exclusively to Milan Channel that we signed the young Ghana player Dominic Adiyah. "The agreement with the Norwegian club Fredrikstad FK is done. Now he needs the permission to come in Italy and we will register him on January 1st. "He must naturally pass the medical visit and then he will be our player. We signed him because he�s a wide striker who can play instead of Pato and Ronaldinho. Our tactical setup has changed now, we needed a wide striker who could alternate himself with those who are already here and we made a move," said Adriano Galliani, Milan's general manager on Saturday. The 19-year-old Adiyiah picked up the U-20 tournament's adidas Golden Shoe and adidas Golden Ball awards after finishing the competition with eight goals and helping Ghana win gold. Milan coach Leonardo has been raving about the Ghana striker's qualities. �Adiyah? He�s a wanted alternative, our squad was built around a tactical setup and therefore now we had to change something. The lad is young and is in line with our strategies," the coach said about his January signing.
