BY foxsports • July 20, 2010

AC Milan have completed the signing of Greece defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Genoa.

The Rossoneri have confirmed Gianmarco Zigoni, Nnamdi Oduamadi and Rodney Strasser have gone the other way in a co-ownership deal as part of the transfer.

Reports suggest Milan have also shelled out five million euros for the 22-year-old.

Papastathopoulos made over 50 appearance for Genoa since signing from AEK Athens in August 2008.

He featured in two of Greece's three matches at the World Cup.
