MILAN - AC Milan quickly wrapped up a deal for United States centre-back Oguchi Onyewu yesterday in a bid to quell supporter unrest over their transfer policy.
The 27-year-old, who impressed in the US side at the Confederations Cup in South Africa last month, has joined on a free transfer from Standard Liege and penned a three-year contract.
The club announced the signing on their website and said he holds a Belgian passport, which means Onyewu might not count as one of only two non-EU players Italian sides are allowed to sign each season.
Milan's interest in the defender had barely been mentioned in the media and his signing comes just a day after hundreds of fans protested at the first day of pre-season training.
Ultra fans chanted slogans and unveiled banners criticising owner Silvio Berlusconi and the decision to sell playmaker Kaká to Real Madrid for ß67million (about R748million).
The Rossoneri, who lost coach Carlo Ancelotti to Chelsea having finished third in Serie A last season, had previously signed only Brazil defender Thiago Silva and little-known young players.
They are looking for a new striker with Real forward Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Sevilla's Luis Fabiano, Arsenal's Emmanuel Adebayor and VfL Wolfsburg's Edin Dzeko in the frame.
Onyewu could end up partnering Silva in central defence. Captain Paolo Maldini retired last season and Alessandro Nesta and Kakha Kaladze are prone to injury.
Milan, now coached by rookie Brazilian Leonardo, have also announced that midfielder Massimo Ambrosini will be the new captain. - Reuters
