Ghana midfielder Michael Essien has arrived in Italy to complete his move to giants AC Milan, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

The 31-year-old arrived in Milan Friday evening after he was given the all-clear by Chelsea.

Essien will sign an 18-month contract at no cost to the Rossoneri.

The Ghana international was given a huge payoff for the remaining one-and-a-half years left to run on his deal at Chelsea.

The ex Olumpique Lyon man brings to an end to his thrilling eight-and-a-half years at Stamford Bridge, which saw him win nine major titles, including the Champions League, two Premier League crowns, four FA Cup titles and a League Cup and a Community Shield.

Essien however played very minimal first team roles in his latter months at Chelsea.

He will be linking up with Black Stars teammate Sulley Muntari who is already a Milan player.

The midfield enforcer is expected to play a major role for Milan when the Champions League resumes due to the suspension of key midfielders; Ricardo Montolivo and Muntari.

    for your info dear site ghanasoccernet.com, Essien wasn’t given a single penny by Chelsea to leave, he left on a permanent transfer, he opted to leave and not Chelsea wanted, he has to thank them because they didn’t ask for a transfer fee, but just to be clear Essien wasn’t paid to leave
