Milan’s Verdi loaned to Eibar

David Villa announces retirement at Vissel Kobe

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.
