De Jong in Milan to discuss move

The Holland international has slipped down the pecking order at

the Etihad Stadium and looks set to try his luck in Serie A.

Preliminary discussions are believed to have been underway for

several days and the official Milan TV channel announced on

Thursday:

“De Jong is on his way to Milan. The medical will be performed

tomorrow.”

De Jong has played twice for the Premier League champions this

season but now finds himself competing with summer arrival Jack

Rodwell.

Since signing from Hamburg in 2009, the 27-year-old has played

137 times for the Citizens and scored two goals.
