Milan’s Verdi loaned to Eibar

Favre expects ‘special test’ for Dortmund when they face Liverpool in pre-season

Spanish La Liga side SD Eibar have completed the signing of Simone Verdi on loan from AC Milan for the 2015/16 season.

The Rossoneri recently took outright ownership of the Italian midfielder, who had previously been co-owned by Torino, although with Serie A rules limiting their squad to 25 players, Milan have been forced to send the player out on a temporary deal.

However, Eibar reportedly have the option to make the loan permanent next year, although the buy-out amount has not been made public.

The 23-year-old Verdi has already arrived in Spain and started training with his new team-mates over the weekend, and will be officially unveiled by the club on Monday.
