Sevilla´s Kjaer joins Milan on loan after ending Atalanta spell
Sevilla defender Simon Kjaer has joined Milan on loan with a view to a permanent move after cutting short his spell with Atalanta.
The Denmark international made five Serie A appearances and enjoyed one Champions League outing with Atalanta, but has now joined their Italian rivals.
Sevilla, the club Kjaer moved to from Fenerbahce in 2017, confirmed the switch in a brief statement on Monday, revealing a purchase option that will come into force at the end of the season.
Milan boss Stefano Pioli will hope Kjaer can provide a boost to his flagging side, who sit 10th in the table.
The San Siro club have been buoyed by the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored in Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Cagliari to snap a three-game winless streak.
