Italian giants AC Milan have taken Ghana striker Kevin-Prince Boateng’s buy-out clause to sign him permanently from Genoa.

AC Milan president Adriano Galliani reveals that his side has reached an agreement over the transfer of their Ghanaian striker, Kevin-Prince Boateng.

"He is our player. Genoa's stake has been valued at €6 million, which will rise to €7m in [the case that] Milan win the Scudetto," Galliani was quoted as saying on the Il Corriere dello Sport.

"The deal was already defined in a restaurant some months ago in Rio de Janeiro. He is in all effects a Milan player, as there is an agreement with Genoa," he added.

The 24 year-old forward joined the Rossoneri on a season-long loan deal from Genoa last summer.

He has been a key figure for the Serie A leaders scoring 3 goals in 24 appearances making him indispensable for Milan.
